I suggest you ...

Make more views openable by command line flags and Plastic:// URLs

As mentioned in the following links, the changeset / branch Diff view from the Plastic GUI can be automatically opened to show a specified changeset or branch. This can be done either via command line / script or (on Windows) by a URL containing a special "Plastic://" protocol:

This is very handy for automation etc. However, I'd like to see more views available via command line and URL args - Branch Explorer, 2D History, Items, Annotate etc...

        This would be extremely helpful for us, since in our case we're integrating with TFS for work tracking, and want to create a custom field with links to reviews, diffs, and the like.

        It would also be handy to have an option in the GUI to copy a link to that branch / changeset to the clipboard in plastic:// format. And / or show that URL in the info window for the item?
