   Mark, for CVS integration this functionality is actually provided by
special "date tags" and Synchronize view. You can create date tag in CVS
repository view and then compare it with another date tag. Comparison
results are shown in synchronize view. There is an overlap in
functionality that is already provided by svn history view and what cvs
sync view provide in "Commit Sets" mode.

   To maintain user experience it make sense to do it the same way for
svn. That, however, will require to support "commit sets" feature for
SVN syncronize view.

   So, if history view shows folder it should bring up folder comparison
then?

   I presume that I can look at quick diff implementation to see what
API to use for diff with pristine copy?

   Will do this tonight.
