Suggestion: Display M-to-N lines replacement as one change instead of two

Hey.

In Tortoise SVN whenever I replace M adjacent lines with N adjacent lines (M != N) this is reflected as two changes. For example, I replace 3 lines code fragment with 2 lines code fragment - this will be displayed as "replaced the first two lines with other two lines" and "deleted the third line".

This is not very convenient. First, it generates extra data the user will have to analyze and finally see that it is one change - 3 lines replaced with 2 lines. Second, two "Next diff"s required to proceed to the next real change.

Also VSS and Araxis Merge show such replacement as one change. If there're no other considerations I suggest that the described behaviour is changed so that such replacements are displayed as one change.

Best wishes.
Dmitry.
