Okay, I wasted a lot of time today doing #1 above. It now shows the 
changes in color inline with the unchanged parts of the document. 
Clicking on a line takes you to the newer version (or if it's a 
deletion) to the older version.

I had wanted to add cool links (like in the Subversion Log command) 
to show/hide the common parts and also allow switching which document 
was considered the newer one. As it is now, whichever one appears 
first in the TM project drawer is the 'older' one.

It's a start. I think it can become cooler with time.
