Improvements to Snapshots UI

Reported by: Aaron Digulla Owned by:

There should be a way to select two snapshots and merge them, that is, all changes from later snapshots should be committed into the earliest one selected and then, all but one snapshot should be deleted. Example:

A -> B -> C -> D

Merge with A+C selected: C->D
Merge with B+C selected: A->C->D
Merge with B+D selected: A->D
Merge with A+D selected: D

Also, the UI is displayed as a tree. The tree metaphor should only be used if you can branch which is not the case. There is no way to start from state B and create a snapshot B1 as a sibling of C. Therefore, the UI should be changed to a list.

"The tree metaphor should only be used if you can branch which is not the case."

.... or better: construct the snapshot-architecture so that branching is indeed possible (something I heavily miss coming from VMware).

Because branching snapshots do exist in Vbox 3.1 (!), I recommend closing this wish.
