loggerhead: alternative web front-end

I really like loggerhead now! I have one other suggestion: when viewing 
files for a revision there is a column that has the last changed 
revision. When clicking on this it takes you to the page for that 
revision id. I think it would be nice if there was a way to jump to the 
changes for the file that you clicked on. In some ways I actually 
expected the "changes" link to take me there but it shows the log 
history instead. Perhaps "changes" could be changed to "history" and 
another column "last change" could be added that took you to the diff 
for the file you select. Or the revision link would just take you to the 
diff for the file.
