Yes. ":yank A" appends the line to register 'a' (which might be
non-empty at the start if, e.g., ':help q' was used). Then I can paste
from the register by doing gg"aP and remove the "Index: " prefixes with
some visual block mode work (or :s///, if you like that better). Pretty
fast once you're used to it.

    :help :let-@
    :help :y
    :help blockwise-visual

For me it's enough to have them in the diff -x-p headers in the other
window and use ^N. :-)

(Having a mini-indent plugin (that saves typing the two spaces in front
of every open paren) helps, too.)
