    Somewhere between the 3.x and 4.x releases of tkdiff, support for diffing more than one pair of files seems to have disappeared.  What happened?

    Please add back the support for diffing pairs of files. This is extremely useful with a source control system such as git. I'm having to use the old 3.x versions because the functionality is missing in 4.x.

    I don't understand.  Was it a command-line invocation that no longer works, or was there something in the UI?

    Really, I'll be happy to try to get this working again if I can understand what it is that doesn't work.  Help?

    The command line used to allow you to specify several pairs of files, with a colon between them.
    Imagine I've got the original in directory 'orig' and the modified in directory 'new':

    tkdiff orig/file1.txt new/file1.txt : orig/file2.txt new/file2.txt : orig/file3.txt new/file3.txt

    That would bring up tkdiff with the diffs for file1, file2, and file3 all together - the "File Pairs" menu would list them as follows:

        orig/file1.txt - new/file1.txt
        orig/file2.txt - new/file2.txt
        orig/file3.txt - new/file3.txt
