Thank you for digging out my suggestion from such a long time back. I 
almost forgot the context ;-).

ChangeSorter is a tool to browse changesets. Therefore, I thought a 
button bar would be in order (along the lines of System Browser):
   * single/dual toggle
   * view selector (preamble, diff, postscript)
   * help

If this sounds like an overkill, you could place a thin grip at the 
right edge of the changeset list to toggle/drag single/dual view (like 
the vertical split view grip in spreadsheets). It is intuitive and won't 
steal space from the method/code panes.
