The required functionality (without diffs) in svn is implemented as:
   svn log -r BASE:HEAD

What I want is a usability fix - command that corresponds to the
actual action user has in head:
1. "check if there are any incoming revisions"
2. "inspect incoming revisions"

This is quite a popular request among Git users too:


Here is the example output (without diffs):
[rietveld]$ hg inc
