Er. I meant to say the file list panel (bottom right panel). Sorry,
didn't come out clear. I'll reword the commit message next time.

Probably not. It is already done when the file list panel is in "Patch" mode.
The "Tree" mode of the panel shows the files in full, so the submodules should
be shown similarly: in a format resembling their full (referenced) contents.

Yes, the limit is indeed arbitrary. I'm reluctant of listing full history,
though: it might take too long a while (and does, in my line of work). Maybe
an option in the settings? Or some kind of a more natural limit (for 1 second?
Until the end of panel?)

That's because I forgot about that option. Of course, I'll fix this.
Also need a shellquote for the path.

Thanks!
