They are colorized, but the file is not a unified diff, so the colours
are misleading. If you look at the r9349 (prop change on
doc/source/en) the properties are multi-line and a new line has been
added. The colours make it look as if the first line has been changed.

I guess what I am saying is that if it can't be colorized correctly,
don't colorize at all.

I mean TMerge correctly identifies the added line of that property,
but I guess it is just diffing files, not interpreting a unified diff.
Ignore this comment.
