I must confess that I do not fully understand why a diff tool needs to
be built into a text editor. Was it the missing ability to edit the
merged file in File Merge that made this tool unusable?
At present time I have no plans of adding this feature mainly because
a) I haven't fully understood the need to have it built in (i.e. a
third party could write the tool if e.g. File Merge isn't sufficient)
and b) there are many pending things that needs to built in (i.e. a
third party cannot supply these things), so these have higher priority.
But I do see several people mention the diff thing, so it's not out of
the question that I may see the advantages of having it built in, but
then we're talking 1.3.
