Imagine someone selects 1000 revisions, and there are 1000 files
affected in those 1000 revisions:

for (file : affectedfiles)
  DWORD actions = 0;
  for (rev : selectedrevisions)
    actions |= action_of_file_in_rev;

As you can see, this operation would be very expensive.
And now imagine a user hitting Ctrl+A to select all revisions...
