Diffs-per-line doesn't sound (on the face of it) too hard to add. Editing
I'm still sceptical on, not because I don't think its a good thing, just
that it is hard to do right and a great deal of work which would draw effort
away from the core of the project.

Well I am surprised! No seriously, what brought you over in this direction?
You found TMerge before you found Perforce, which is fairly well known,
although again probably not as a diff tool.

BTW. What does Perforce Diff lack? I still haven't downloaded and tried it.

That is a question for Stefan. Apart from new packaging, it would need some
further checks to make sure it doesn't fall over when used without TProc.
