Re: Why temp files when diffing working copy?

I too like to edit in my diff editor. Without know the internals, it seems
to make sense that if the product of the diff is intended for the developer,
then any translation should be to the developers environment. Is there an
advantage to de-translating the working copy as opposed to translating the
repo file for the compare?

Tks.
