I have had the same thoughts and think it would be great too. Hopefully
someone will submit a patch for it.

The summarize option was not available in JavaHL with 1.4, so you would have
to use the trunk JavaHL code to look at it.

The other way to do this that I was hoping would be implemented some day was
that we could just use svn diff and give the diff file to Eclipse engine to
produce the UI.
