There was an item in that issue concerning the property list dialog
(showing WC properties). It would be possible to mark properties which
have been changed locally, and also possibly to add a diff button to
diff the selected property using TMerge (button only enabled if property
is changed). Is that worth doing, or too much pain for too little gain?
