I am always interested to learn more about the parts of Subclipse I do not
understand. Could you briefly explain how and why this feature would be
related to the SyncInfo? Doesn't the feature just highlight the areas in
the source that have been modified? Wouldn't it just be doing some kind
of real-time diff with the pristine copy?

Is the SyncInfo just a way to short-circuit the diff when we know the file
has not been modified?
