Description kirillkh 2007-03-15 16:40:02 UTC
Today, the Search History view only allows diffing two revisions that belong to
the same file. This doesn't cover the case, when one needs to diff revisions of
different files.

One common use case is having a file with several revisions under the CVS
control, renaming the file, modifying and committing it several times:
essentially, this is the same file and the desire to diff its newer revision to
an older one is completely sane.
