annotate should include the working tree in the files being annotated

Bug #3439 reported by Robert Collins on 2005-10-21

Bug Description

When I run 'annotate foo' and I have edited foo, I expect to see the version of foo in front ot me. I would expect to have to use 'annotate -r -1' to see the basis copy, or -r X to annotate an arbitrary revision.

As I see it annotate is about looking at history, not working changes, but that could be just because that's the way annotate has always worked. I think we'd have to discuss this one on the list.

From a brief look at the code this won't be that easy, the annotation is tied directly to the weave, and AIUI we don't have a weave until we commit, so we'd have to fudge one up for the working tree?

This is now done in gannotate, though the display is not very obvious.
