Many "master" views related to VCS support have a "Show Diff" detail dialog.
I've always though it to be a bit silly that invoking "Show Diff" for newly
added files behaves the same way as a regular diff (with actual differences):
-left part of the screen is always empty, while right is often not full visible
-right part is fully covered with a green "added" background. A backgroud
color is useful to distinguish between different sections, but in this case
there's no use.
I would even say that the 100% green background makes reading the code less
-right side is always scrolled to the end of the added files (showing just
the last line).
So, when I'm browsing changes in CVS/SVN, for new files I always have to:
1) scroll up
2) drag the middle pane to the left to get more "code reading space".
Wouldn't it be better if "Show Diff" for newly added files would just work
-without a left pane (there's nothing to compare with)
-without a background
-scrolled to the top
