Horizontal comparison panes in diff viewer

Would you consider adding optional horizontal comparison panes to the diff viewer, displayed or hidden with a button or a key combination?

It becomes useful when there are changes in long lines. Thanks to them you don't usually have to scroll the window in order to see all changed areas. This idea comes from WinMerge, which has both vertical and horizontal comparison panes.

        Wow! Never thought it!

        But it is useful for single lines only, right? I mean, side-by-side looks better for regular code blocks.

        Look, right now we're redoing the mergetool. First we rewrote the diff tools (you saw now we have proper syntax highlight, folding, code completion and even semantic diffs built-in) and now we're on the mergetool.exe. One we have that finished we could definitely take a look at this.

        I'll share this with our merge/diff experts and see what they feel about it :-)

        I forgot to mention that the horizontal pane displays only one block of changes at a time - the one highlighted in vertical panes above it.
