OK, good, thanks, now there's (I think) only one more question:
suppose the two nodes you want to diff are distinct, and are neither
of them visible anywhere in HEAD (because there's been a whole lot of
this "rm/create instead of modify" going on). I need to specify
revision info merely to find a tree where each node can be addressed
(two different revision specs), and then still I need to specify the
particular revisions to be compared. That's potentially two distinct
nodes and four distinct revisions. Can the proposed syntax cover

(I think this is somewhere out in those hinterlands Greg called
"esoteric," but as I mentioned previously, I've been there often
enough to think it's of only "power user" obscurity.)
