Hold down the shift key when getting the explorer right-click context
menu, and you should see Diff-with-URL. That will allow you to diff
your working copy with some other branch.

Diffing with other revisions on the same branch is easy using the log
dialog, but how does PVCS allow you diff two revisions on different
branches easily? What's the GUI?
