View entire folder tree of particular commit #398

It is currently possible to view the diff for a branch or commit in a folder view which contains the changed files.

I would like to be able to browse the whole file tree for a commit.
(i.e. show the tree-ish for that commit. Like the tree view in tig)

The corresponding command line command would be
git ls-tree --name-only -r <commit-ish>

Sometimes it is easier to understand the state of a commit if you can see how all the files were at that point in time.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm thinking there might be an opportunity to hook into the new FileSystemProvider that vscode support -- so you could actually open the workspace for that point in time.
