File log and repo log should be represented as separated commands in the UI

I often find confusing to open repo log when I have a file selected. I end up opening file log, then I realize this, close it, unselect the file and reopen the log.

I think that two separate buttons would be good. The file one should be grayed out when no file is selected.


One button would be OK, but its text could be changed to reflect the action thats being taken.

Also, I would like to better see which part of the application currently has the focus. Some actions are different depending whether a branch, a file or the repo is currently focused (esp. when all three have a selection).

The focused control should be easily visible from the view's tab color.
