I think he means local modifications in the working copy. However I
don't think that is a good idea for a couple of reasons:

1. It only works when invoked for a working copy, otherwise the rev
graph won't know where to look for changes. That might cause the
unwary to believe that there are no changes, when in fact they have
called the rev graph from the repo browser, or from another branch.
2. It means a WC crawl which could take a long time for a large WC.
3. Your local changes may not be against HEAD anyway. Others may have
committed changes since you last updated.

In gmail I star any emails that indicate changes I need to make to the
docs. I did have an open documentation issue for 1.5, but starring the
emails is easier. If someone else wants to contribute I can go back to
using the issue tracker to make it easier to share.

Thanks for your comments Glenn, well thought through feedback is
always appreciated.

Simon
