Ranger doesn't have two panes, so I don't think you can apply the same
logic as in mc/vifm.  But sometimes it is indeed necessary to get files
from other directories, for example for diffing, as you said.
By simply adding %c to get all copied/cut files, (which makes sense
anyway,) this use case should be covered.  Yank the first file, move to
the second, run "diff %c %f".

I can't think of any use for %d, but I can add it anyway for the sake of
completeness, along with %t for all tagged files (though it seems like
mc uses the term "tagged file" differently...)
