wxWindows was used for its esay API not really for its cross-platform
capabilities. Because the Shell Extensions are so Windows specific a
significant amount of re-writing is necessary for any platform. Having
said that people have expressed interest before for Mac OS X and KDE,
but so far nothing has materialized.

We are not really connected to the TortoiseSVN project. In fact I think
they have even borrowed only a little code from TortoiseCVS. The dialogs
are different, and I'm not sure they even use wxWindows. Because the SVN
client interface is so much better than CVS it was probably pretty easy

The plan is anyone can borrow the idea, concepts, code, or name as much
or as little as possible. It's GPL! I'm sure people would love have a
TortoiseKDE, a GTortoiseCVS, or a TortoiseEclipse (seriously I *hate*
the CVS interface in Eclipse, very clunky).

I do not think you appreciate the full value of sliced bread;)
