webrev.ksh inserts full commit history of a file

Hi Attila,

you can use '-r rev' to compare against a specific revision. I use it
together with Mercurial Queues if I have changes from my queue pushed
but only want a webrev of the top-most change. In that case I do
"webrev.ksh -r qbase".

Also you can use '-N' to prevent webrev.ksh doing 'hg outgoing' and
instead producing a webrev of local changes only (i.e. 'hg status').

Not sure if that matters. If anybody has an insight into it, please let me know.
