Just the diff. I would rather show the compare editor, but that would
really require the next item. I think the main thing would be to just
expose the efficiency of svn diff. I wouldn't replace the existing compare
options, just maybe add one. Like I said, Create Patch is basically the
same thing unless we allowed you to do more advanced diffs, like from the
History Viewer.

This is the existing bug report in Eclipse. I suspect that someone who
knew the code could do it reasonably easily. Well not easy, but probably
no more difficult than what they have already.
