   I'm not sure how filtering could look like, but I can take a look on

   I was looking trough comparison yesterday, and wasn't able to find
much, except features like "Compare with revision..." or "Compare with
tag/branch..." that allows to choose second file to compare. There could
be some cosmetic changes, like show compared revisions/branches in
comparison editor.
   I have to admit that I don't feel ready yet to work on things like merge.

   By the way, current repository properies dialod doesn't allow to see
URL if label had been changes. I add some static non editable label that
will show this URL to this dialog. What do you think?

   I'll try that.
