OK, I just did, thanks:

I described the use case on the bug report. The gist of it is that
TortoiseHg (and similar tools) use a directory diff when comparing
whole revisions. Not being able to set the label for directory
comparions makes using meld in that context less than ideal.

BTW, I went through the code briefly. I saw that while
"tab.set_labels(options.label) seems to be called both for file and
folder diffs, the DirDiff class does not seem to have a set_labels()
method, while the FileDiff class does. Also, the recompute_label()
method of these classes is different, only the, with the FileDiff one
reads the labels.

Unfortunatelly I have no experience with GTK so it is a bit hard for
me to go further than that. Plus it is hard to debug because a lot of
GTK error messages are constantly printed into the windows console.
