If these commands do not work, i think they probably should be removed from 
the menu bar and C-x h m, because these are the most obvious places to find 
out what the user can do with a buffer.  I would really like to see these 
features working in a pcvs logview though. the ability to select a range in 
the log and diff it is so sweet.
