Feature Request TortoiseMerge: Search only in or around changed lines.

Dear Stefan,

The Search-function in TortoiseMerge would be much more helpful, if it
would be possible to search only in or "around" changes, ie. in

Eg. I would like to know where something has changed regarding a
"menu" in a big text file, which has about 50 - 60 changes, but about
200 - 500 occurences of "menu". It would then be very convienent, if
the Search-dialog (<Ctrl>+<f>) had an option to limit the search to
those changes (those which are colored in the display).

Even better would be the option to search "around" changed lines,
e.g. with-in an configurable amount of lines next to changed lines
(say 20 lines plus or minus changed lines), as the differencing
algorithm sometimes has a weird notion of which lines have changed,
and which have not.

If one can provide a better definition of "around", please speak up.

What do you think?
