I don't agree. I think it makes sense to do it the way that is supported
by Subversion, and that is to provide dates as inputs to the revision
parms on the svn log command. The existing client adapter API should
already support this. This is something we could implement in our
existing view and would be the expected Subversion behavior.

I was more thinking just that the compare options should be enabled.
Ideally you could select a file from the affected paths list and compare
it with the working copy.
