Feature request: ability to view deleted file contents

See original GitHub issue

When opening View History (git log), selecting a commit, and chosing a file that was modified, you get the ability to compare the file with the previous version.

However, if the file was removed in this commit, you do not get the ability to view the previous version of the file (ie: before it was deleted). It would be great if this was possible, just to check what you deleted.

Hi, in the same line, it would also make sense to be able to view the content of files which have been added.
