Yeah, I didn't think it would be exactly what you wanted but it's the
closest we have at the moment.

I think there are two small improvements which would make it much more

1) Add a link to get from stat-only mode to the full diff
2) Add a configuration variable to use stat-only mode by default

Would that get closer to what you're looking for or is there something
still missing?
