Diffing the tips of branches in a SCM will not show you which lines were
changed by which changeset. If you want that information - which is one
of the most useful ones, because the same file can be changed for many
different purposes - you need to browse your SCM's history, in which
changesets are dependent on each other. Just like quilt patches.
