I do not see this feature getting any easier to use for the forseeable
future. I about all I can see improvements in is showing the output
graphically instead of as a diff, but the process to invoke the compare is
not likely to change. There have been talks in the Subversion lists on
adding some new capabilities to make this easier but it is hard to tell if
they have settled on anything or when they plan to implement it. Also,
their ideas seems very geared towards power users and the command line. I
am not sure how easily we will be able to leverage those features if they
do implement them.

Being able to easily see the tags associated with a specific revision in
this history view is not likely to ever happen. The current design of
Subversion makes it impossible and the area of the design that effects
this is so core to Subversion and a lot of its features that I do not
anticipate them changing their design for this feature.
