Like github can: http://github.com/rails/rails/branches/2-3-stable (you can switch the base branch, and compare it to others) shows the commits between these revisions: http://github.com/rails/rails/compare/2-3-stable...2-2-stable (one url) the files changed (including how many was added/removed) full diffs of the combined commits for each file. and the comments.

same for comparing against tags

Interesting but extremely intensive on the server side and can result in a really huge page. I mark it as FixLater as it is not a priority but still, it is interesting.
Summary: List changes between tags and branches

what about just showing the revision numbers in which two branches or tags differ? That should be relatively small (and potentially page-able if it does grow out of hand). At least for the vcs' that support it

I need to check what we can extract out of the different SCM. What is sure is that first, we will need to add the ability to easily navigate through the history of a given file together with a "blame" version. Then I will check this one.
