Swapping bottom left and right panes (content and patch summary/file tree) in gitk

Gitk (as of git 2.4.2) has its bottom left and right panes the other way round to what I like: the bottom right shows the file tree or the patch summary, while the bottom left shows the contents of what is selected on the right. Isn't that kinda non-standard?

There is no official way to swap those panes, so here's a little hacky patch to do it.


If there is enough interest I will try sending upstream an official patch with a real preference setting or whatever. If not, It Works For Me.
