Looks good, but for longer distance draging is not most comfortable at
least for me.
* right click on left/right panel select "add anchor(sync point)" -
for hovered line
* right click again on same panel give option "move new anchor"
* right click on right/left panel and "use anchor(sync point)"
* right click on line with anchor would have option "delete anchor"
after set up sync you can use drag, but I afraid that may lead to lots
of edge cases - anchors on empty lines, anchors out of orders ...
Note we use other method to show changes instead of arrow we line up
matched lines. This require that anchors in left and right view need to
have same order.
