Issues with editing in TMerge

Hi folks,

Just trying out the editing features in TMerge, and I found behaviour
I'm not sure of.

If you delete lines from the right pane, they also disappear from the
left pane. This is not consistent with the way TMerge normally shows
lines which were originally in the file and have now been removed. I
think the line should become empty and un-numbered. It means the
editing does not behave like a normal text editor, but then the
display is not really WYSIWYG anyway, due to the way it shows added
and deleted lines.

If you add a line in the right pane (cursor at left margin and press
enter), the new line has no line number, so the line numbering
sequence is broken. I think this is a bug. The left pane gains a new
un-numbered line, which is correct.

If you combine adding and deleting lines, the left and right panes
become out of sync. In the simplest case you can add a line in the
right pane and then delete it again, and the right and left panes show
different lines deleted.

For showing differences in a WYSIWYG way, I think UltraCompare takes
some beating (see screenshot) but doing anything like that would be a
*major* chunk of work.
