Nice, it didn't occur to me that this might be possible.
Is it possible to allow more than one alternate diff/merge tool and have all
these available to choose between for any diff?
I mean this as a 'default' case where the file being diffed hasn't had
anything defined for its extension. Ideally you'd have a 'diff' option to
use the default and a submenu with one item per alternate.
I suppose it's debatable whether all the alternates should be available if
there is also an extension-specific tool defined, but my feeling is yes,
they should.
