The problem with cherry-pick is you need to designate the commit that
you want picked.  Putting the action in the history view makes it easy
to designate a commit node to cherry-pick.

If you do that we need to then show a history view in a dialog, and
let the user modify the display of it until they find the commit they
want.  But I agree with you, its more discoverable to have cherry-pick
in the file/project team menu.
