Improvements to the Annotate view

Taking some ideas from TortoiseBlame:

* When right-clicking a changeset/line, add a choice "Annotate previous changeset" (this is so you can trace the earlier history of the line you're interested in).

* When right-clicking a line and choosing "Diff contents of branch/changeset ...", the file that you are currently annotating should be pre-selected in the Comparison window that appears.

* Use a tooltip box to display log message (and branch, date etc) when hovering the mouse pointer over a changeset/line.

* Remove the horizontal color gradient. While a nice effect, it distracts from the per-date/author color gradient.

* Add automatic coloring of changeset text to make sure it's visible against the per-date/author background color.
