Isn't is possible to get the list of changed files (through a similar
process ... parsing the udiff?? ugly I know!), then open the same
multi-file diff list that does the revision differences?

I don't see that this is that important .... especially if we can get
the "Compare with Working Copy" option added to the modified files list
in the log dialog..... this would assist in partially reverting a change
with the assistance of a diff tool. Any chance that can be added in
place of this more complex change?

Thanks,
Matt
