It's like Christmas in February!! So great! Some thoughts:

  * Subversion integration with syntax highlighting for diffs is fantastic.
I know it a lot to ask for, but putting the diff somehow in the actual
editor window would be simply amazing.

  * I find the ssh-agent warning confusing, in that I don't know in what
context I'm disabling the test. I should be able to select in what scope I'm
going to disable the test -- project-wide, system-wide, just for that file?

  * Bookmarks are great. I've needed something like this. I'd like to be
able categorize bookmarks, like "TODO", "FIXME", etc. Or if it auto-created
bookmarks based on such text in the file, that would be handy.

  * Fold-all-methods. I've been wanting this.

  * It would be nice if SHIFT+F2 could really get rid of everything,
including the menubar, tabs, fold area, etc.

  * Why wouldn't I always use "Search in Files" and select the current file
instead of use the "Search" panel?
