Re: swd - SVN word diff (wdiff)

Not with wdiff as it stands, so I think that would definitely require
changes to wdiff. I'm pretty happy with line level diffs for source
code because you don't often reflow paragraphs of text, but then again
I've never seen a token level diff. It's an interesting idea though...
