Actually "Compare Revisions" is much nicer since it uses TortoiseMerge (I
find unified diffs very hard to read, personally), but yes, that worked,

From other posts, the whole log viewer seems to be packed full of
functionality which is very very hard to find unless you know about it
(e.g. to my knowledge, there are no clues that selecting two revisions is
even possible, let alone that it gives access to relevant functionality).
Perhaps this could do with some thoughts on the UI?

One other thing about it is that the functionality of the top pane depends
on what you selected in the browser when you were bringing up the log
viewer but the log viewer itself gives now outward sign of this.

Completely different approach to what I was expecting, which is probably
why I didn't find it. Works well though, thanks.

Thanks for you help,
