I'm looking forward to the next version. Sorry for posting so many
requests that you've already finished.

If that's not possible, how does it know how to color the diff lines? I
have found it to work like this:

Select two files in explorer.
Right click on one of them and select "TSVN -> Diff". The name of the
file that was right-clicked is listed on the right side of the header
area. That file is the "new" file and its diff lines are colored green.
Not too hard to calculate when you think about it, but I always have to
stop what I'm doing and actually think about which is which. A color
coded file name would enable me to know at a glance.
