My workflow:
1) vc-dir to show me what is modified
2) vc-diff on a file to show me the diff
3) vc-ci (or whatever) to commit the change

Here's what I'd like:

1) A menu entry to vc-dir to hide uninteresting files.  Often I have many
test results that are not revision controlled.

2) Something equivalent to #2 and #3 above

3) Also, a few less-used options, such as revert or delete.
