i think that is an excellent idea. you'd probably want to support the more 
common varieties first (eg CVS) and the others later but it's worth doing

Yes that is correct - not everyone uses BeIDE. 
The P4Companion is also a Tracker Add-On so you can use the Tracker to do it 
or if you _do_ happen to use the BeIDE it is there for you as well.

Excellent suggestions guys!! 
It's going to be a great OS to use.
