We actually have an open issue for this. But Sander Striker (who
wrote our diff library) claims that there's no way to really
gracefully wedge in this heuristics -- you basically have to rewrite
the entirety of the diff internal guts. Which is fine, of course, but
at the time I asked him, he esimated it would take him a couple of
weeks of coding effort to bang it out.
