hg ci -p?

Mercurial lists the files changed, at checkin.  Some of these haven't
actually changed, so I have to go out and do a diff just to check.
Also, I tend to need another window to hold the diff so I can write a
sensible change in complex cases.

It'd be nice to have:
(1) unchanged files not listed in the ci summary,
(2) an option (-p seems consistent) to show the whole patch below the ci
(3) the nonsensical description of the -f option to commit in the man
page cleared up.

My python skills are insufficient for the first two, and the source to
the man pages doesn't seem to be in the repository for the last one 8(
