Maybe something like an -r option with several selectors in parentheses or so. Or being able to repeat -r options (and introduce another option for the second selector of the differential merge -- it was not really a good decision anyway to use the same option for two different meanings). While we're at thinking about it... :) I always felt that a clearer distinction between a tag and a branch would be helpful. Other than being able to use them with the same command options, they don't seem to have much in common (from a user's perspective). Gerhard
