Feature request: enable use of WinMerge from "show log" on a selected folder

currently the "compare with working copy" (vergleiche mit Arbeitskopie) menu item from the log screen's context menu can only use TortoiseMerge if the log has been opened on a complete folder. As already explained to me this comes from using the patch file format for extracting this information, which is not understood by WinMerge (or most other merge tools).
If the log has been opened on a single file WinMerge can be used.

Now the question: why shouldn't TortoiseSVN be able to use WinMerge's functionality of diffing complete folders?
It might be necessary or useful to use commandline parameter /r from WinMerge.

Any chance to get this implemented?
