Of course it might be simpler/more mainstream to extend the standard class browser but since the
most activity right now seems to be in Whisker I took a chance by asking you! :-)

Well anyway, I pictured a few menu-choices like "update" and "commit" on classes and categories
(haven't used Whisker yet, do you have selectable categories like in the package browser?) and
perhaps the ability to switch on revision numbers in class names. This combined with a few special
UIs reachable from menu-choices would probably be enough for 95% of the time.

When I think more of it, it is probably easier if we first build some form of standalone UI that
works and then - if it looks interesting at that point, we can move functionality into Whisker.

So... the question remains - anyone interested? ;-)

regards, Göran
