One other common utility that Linux filesystem developers often forget is undelete - a tool that would analyse the filesystem and report what files and what versions of files it can recover. This should be simple enough to implement in Tux3.
It's on the to.do list. The standard argument against undelete is that it can be implemented at a higher level, as a move to a Trash folder in place of a delete. In practice, there is often not a gui around, and it doesn't help when you are running a shell under the gui. So if it turns out to be easy to do as part of the versioning, Tux3 will have it.
