Replicating some email conversation for context...
Peter Tyser: In a perfect world it'd be nice to support being able to diff both staged and unstaged files. Perhaps a "staged" filter like the current Modified/Normal/NonVC ones, or possibly adding new states to the "Status" column that could have values such as "Modified/Staged", "Modified", "Added/Staged", etc.
Kai Willadsen: I think that adding the ability to toggle between viewing staged/unstaged files is a good idea. I'm uncertain what the UI should be -- it is, in a way, different to other filters -- but it would require some changes to the VC system, and whatever was added would need to work for all appropriate VCs.
