The ability to "re-sync" with SVN (or possibly other version control systems) to re-set all the modified files and lines.  For instance, let's say I restart Slickedit (or even open/close files).  I would then use this macro/command to update all the modified line markers and the dots on modified files (this part may already be done) to match the changes in my sandbox, not just what I've changed in my current editing session.  Perhaps even a setting that automatically sets the modified lines based on the VCS when Slickedit is started or the file is opened.

The ability to distinguish read-only files in the project tool window, so you can see which files are currently checked out.  This could be done by having a slightly different icon, such as an icon with a slightly different color, or an icon with a small symbol superimposed over the lower right corner.

I am a former Codewright user, and Codewright did this by making the text blue instead of black on the read-only file names.

Yep, I'd definitely like this as well (another ex-Codewright user), it's minor but useful.

We have this ... sort of.  We have support to show version control status for SCC version control providers, and also for Subversion.

I'm using perforce version control so I'm not sure wide this applies, but:
I've turned on "Show status on file icons" which is cool as I can now see red and blue dots on the files in file dialogs.  Great!  Except I don't know what they mean.  I'm sure they match whatever perforce uses for red/blue checkmarks on their P4 gui but I never remember what those mean either (I'm a lazy programmer!).  In P4's GUI, however, I can just hover over the file and the tool tip text will display the version control status of the file along with the filename/path.

I'd suggest that SE's tool tip text should do the same as it just currently shows the filename/path.
