diff with a diffo

Interested in diff-ing written text? Meet dwdiff, which produces a single output file (instead of a split one) with additions & deletions highlighted in context:

{+ added text +} common text [- deleted text -]

This makes it much easier to spot functional differences than a standard diff & much less likely that (as with a side-by-side eyeball check) differences would be overlooked.
