To compare two arbitrary revisions, activate the region: set the
beginning of the region to the line with the first revision and the
end of the region to the line with the second revision to compare,
then type @kbd{d} or @kbd{=}. When the beginning of the region is on
the top line that has no revision, it uses the current working revision
as the first revision to compare. When the end of the region is on
the bottom non-revision line after the last revision line, then it
uses the next earlier revision after the last displayed revision as
the second revision to compare.
