TortoiseMerge was written way before TortoiseBlame. And they don't share
any code at all, they're completely independent.
TortoiseBlame uses the scintilla control to show the file contents.
TortoiseMerge draws the file contents itself. That's because it has to
be very fast when scrolling. You won't notice the speed issue in
TortoiseBlame because there's only one file open at a time, but in
TortoiseMerge there can be up to three. And all three have to be
synchronized when scrolling - which is when you really would notice the

You already can switch to one-pane view in TortoiseMerge, which will
show you both files as one.

Well, it's very useful if you have to deal with strings which you don't
know their length before actually using them.
