Currently I have no plans of writing such a thing. I think such a tool
could just as easily be written by a third party, and I prefer to focus
my development on the things that cannot.
Xcode uses an external tool (FileMerge) which can be found in
/Developer/Applications/Utilities -- you may be able to make this work
This said, since people obviously do expect a file merge tool to come
with their editor, I wouldn't mind ease the interoperation with another
tool, and I can also look into writing a GUI wrapper for the diff
command line tool, which unlike FileMerge should be standard on all
But I think this is more a 1.2 priority than 1.1.
