major annoyance with the package view : test and source trees are merged,

(I'm not posting this as a bug/request, as the coming module stuff
addition will probably change the final look)

Now that the source view had been removed, all we're left with it the
project and package view.


The problem :
-


The package view consolidates all the source trees (tests, and sources).


Example :

Project view
-


source/
/com.tools.Util

test/
/com.tools.Test1_Util
/com.tools.Test2_Util
/com.tools.Test3_Util
doc/
lib/
build/
etc...


In the source view, you used to be able to select only your '/source' or
'/test' source tree.

Package view
-



ProjectX/
/com.tools.Util
/com.tools.Test1_Util
/com.tools.Test2_Util
/com.tools.Test3_Util


This is a major annoyance.

At the bare minimum, there should be a way to select which 'kind'
(test,or source) of folder you want to see.

Question to JetBrains : what is your plan regarding this matter?

Yes, it sounds reasonable to add a "test source" filter to the Package View. Please submit an SCR for this.
Also, there is another view coming - Favourites View. It will be possible to select individual packages/directories and add them to
this view as root items (similar to "Watches" in Debugger).

I hope it won't be stopped by the "feature freeze" barrier.

Different Icons would be a good start. I have the same packages for
application and for tests. Therefore each shows up twice (with #939).
