Joe you legend of a man,
I'm using this almost exclusively now. I have a request though. In a team dev env I might need to fetch someone else's code from the server. In Eclipse this would mean subscribing to the metadata and then letting it download, or if I'm subscribed to "*" then clicking on the folder and selecting "Refresh from server".
Of course this can be done through source control but it's come up a few times so I thought I'd ask for it :)
Wes, you should be able to use the "Clean Project" command to pull the latest and greatest server copies based on your project's package.xml. But, I agree, a "refresh from server" option on the folder is a nice enhancement.
clean specific directories resolves #10
Wes, you're now able to accomplish this by right clicking the directory (or selected directories) and choosing MavensMate --> Refresh from Server
