I am not sure what you mean by batch compare, but please file an
enhancement in the issue tracker about being able to select multiple

I do not see any signs that Subversive supports this either. I just
tried it and it gave an error that it was not supported. Also, in
your example there is an implication that these projects are in
different repositories. That would seem like a non-starter. I could
see trying to support this in a single repository that contains many
projects, but not across multiple repositories. Regardless, please
file an enhancement in the issue tracker.
