Option to show contents of new files in a changeset

When a changeset contains both modified files and new files, it's easy to miss that files were added.
A common occurrence I've run a cross is someone will commit changes to
foo.py which use code from a new module
bar.py. Since the diff view pretty much dominates the screen, it creates the tendency to glance past the list of files and not notice that new ones were added. It also makes it more difficult to see the whole changeset in context since effectively only part of the new code is visible at once.
It would be great if there could be an option in the changeset view to expand the contents of new files in much the same way as it shows modified files.
