Request for improving tabbing on the Commit dialog

Message I'm currently testing build 21779.

An issue (for myself at least) with the 1.7 Commit dialog is that it
typically requires 8 or more tab key presses to go from the Log Message text
box in the upper pane, to the file list control in the bottom pane. One must
now tab through all of the checkbox controls (All | None | Non-Versioned |
... )

With TSVN 1.6, only one tab keypress was required to jump from the Log
message textbox to the File list list control. This is a pretty integral
part of my workflow - type the log message, hit tab to jump to file list
pane, and then start reviewing the changesets, all using keypresses.

Would it be possible to put all of the checkbox controls in some sort of
panel that such that 1 tab key press would take you from the Log message box
to a panel containing the checkbox controls, and a second tab key press
would take you to the file list pane? When in the panel (pane?) containing
the checkbox controls, the arrow keys could be used to navigate among the
checkbox controls.

Here is a screen shot demonstrating what I mean. Group all of the circled
checkboxes into a panel that allows navigating among the items with the
arrow keys, and the panel could be "skipped-over" with one tab key press.

I'm not familiar with the Windows UI so I don't know if this is possible,
and sorry if this request is confusing due to my not being familiar with the
proper UI terminology ;)

Thanks!
