Of course.

To be (hopefully) really clear: Start the line-over-line diff from
offset N instead of 0 *only* when required to make the first difference
visible. As soon as the horizontal scroll bar is dragged
it should snap back to the current behaviour of following wherever the
scroll bar is.

Sure. Many apps (e.g. Firefox, OpenOffice) use CTRL as a wheelmouse
modifier to adjust your zoom-level/fontsize, otherwise the wheelmouse
scrolls up/down. Adding keyboard support for the same thing would
certainly help accessibility though.
