Make better use of the icons in History and Changesets views
The "View history" and "Changesets" views would benefit from having different icons for each changeset line, depending on whether there's an incoming (or outgoing?) merge etc. As it is currently, the icons in these list views are not really used to their full potential since they are all the same...

Thanks! The following uservoices are related to this idea:
It is also discussed in the this forum post: http://www.plasticscm.net/index.php?/topic/1741-merge-not-displayed-neither-in-file-history-nor-in-file-2d-history/
Yes, probably we shouldn't use icons at all on views. In fact that's what we're doing in both Linux and Mac, and Windows is expected to follow soon. They're just decorators created only for aesthetic purposes.
Now, onto your suggestion: yes, it is doable, but it will radically change how the view is implemented, it is just a query at this point, like all basic views, and it would have to be changed to something else. Interesting point, anyway, since actually showing whether the changeset is involved on a merge or not, seems to be a good idea.
