Bug Description

When using CVS you have the ability to chose "Projects from CVS" under file -> new -> other where you enter host, path, user credentials etc.

Are there plans to implement the same feature in BzrEclipse? I.e the possibility to "checkout" a project directly from within Eclipse.

Bug: When in Eclipse there is no way to checkout code directly from Launchpad, nor to specify a branch not resident on local filesystem.

Reproduction:
1. File -> New -> Other -> "Branch as new Project".
2. In the import wizard there is no way to specify, for example, lp:~niklas-andersson/+junk/factoryx-java, as an existing branch. Nor any other prefixes such as sshfs,bzr+ssh etc.

When trying to use "Initialize a new branch location" it isn't possible to specify any "off site" branch using the protocols above.

With this bug solved, Eclipse would work in harmony with Launchpad and any other external bzr-server, without the developer having to resort to the command line.
