View File Status: provide status relative to repository root
Created originally on Bitbucket by sborho (Steve Borho)
Currently "View File Status" shows only files relative to the directory where it was invoked.
This maybe fine for people coming from other revision control system (like SVN).
A hg user would expect to get a list of all files relative to the repository's root directory, regardless in which sub-directory "View File Status" was invoked.
I suggest an additional checkbox "root" at the bottom of the status window (where the other checkboxes are located) which enables/disables showing files relative to repository root directory.
The standard setting for this checkbox should be configurable in "Setting/Global". Which setting is used as default (i.e. after fresh installation) is ot be discussed. I would prefer to have "root" enabled.
