Bug Description

It would be nice if the diffs during a merge proposal would show intraline diffs instead of just per-line. For instance, if my diff is:

-abcdFoo
+defgFoo

It would be nice if the "abcd" and "defg" were highlighted (a darker red/green, for instance) to highlight the fact that both lines have a "Foo" that's unchanged. This is frequently done with side-by-side diffs (Meld does this, for instance), but there's no inherent reason it can't be done with launchpad's block-style diffs.
