Revision Details view should show renames

Gili
created an issue

When viewing old revisions containing renames, TortoiseHg should show renames as a single entry and show it was renamed from X to Y.

Currently, there are two separate add/remove entries and no indication the two are related.

    Yuya,

    I'm aware of that, but if you invoke "hg diff --git -r first -r second" it'll collapse this information into a rename with a source and target path. We should display this information by default.

    I'd really like to see this to. Perhaps an option to switch between using hg diff and hg diff --git and then the UI so that renames can be displayed directly.

    Hg's handling of renames is one of the main reasons we're looking to move from Subversion.
