Feature Request: Retrospective Patch

If you're still working on the "Browse Changes" functionality in Selena, is there any chance you could add the ability to create a retrospective patch based upon a selected change revision? I'm assuming (and this could be a big assumption) that if you can access each individual file's diff, that you can combine those into a patch file!

We usually apply bug fixes against multiple branches using patches and occasionally people forget to create a patch before committing the changes.

That wouldn't be hard to implement. Please file a JIRA issue.

This would probably be quite simple to implement, at least for SVN. "svn diff -c]]>" does exactly that.
