Not in anyway an abuse. Anytime my IDE can save me hassle I think it is a worthwhile endeavor. There are many other examples of this already in the IDE which makes it such a helpful product.
If it was possible for it to make bacon, I would request that too, because bacon is good.
The question still stands, does Intellij offer an option to "svn dump" or "svn load"?
Isn't it, that usually svn dumps are performed on the SVN server, but IDEA
is used on a normal client machine? Note, that IDEA "only" contains a SVN
client and surely is not designed for SVN administrative purposes.
