What's wrong with WinCvs' Flat View? He's already using WinCvs. Just filter
"committable files", activate Flat View, select all and commit.

I am however under the impression that Robert is looking for something else,
kind of a local command cache that will be submitted to the server as a
batch. Or did I misunderstand the request?
