Erm, diffing isn't the topic here. I have a perfectly working diff-tool for mdb integrated in TSVN.

It really depends. Depending on who did the change I would like to speak to this person telling him that he potentially did something wrong so he will not do it a second time in the future. Other uses would indeed be reverting the changes from that revision. (very tedious task, running diffs against the "good" commits that followed to just revert the changes from this particular revision).
> You're still just stating *that* it helps you, not *why*. How does knowing
Yea, basically same response as above. Just wanted to add that there is probably more information in (T)SVN that you don't always need. (Do you need the checkin time of each commit? Is it always relevant?).
Anyways. I do agree this is not something you would need everyday, but since I have found myself in a number of situations over the course of years where I had really appreciated being able to retrieve the info via a simple click/view.
Anyways, I am fine with the solution of a scripted task where I supply repo url and it gives me what I want. It's really just a matter of convenience and in the dev's hands.
