True, though I should have clarified my comments as applying
particularly to the intra-line diff, where not only are changed lines
indicated (by dark red/green) but also changed characters (by bright
red/green).  As someone who could spend an hour staring at a line and
not seeing the addition of a single letter, I find that very useful.  :)

Perhaps in your approach some compromise could be obtained by indicating
a changed line as you suggest, and which characters are changed via an
alteration to either the foreground (perhaps making them bold) or
background color of the characters.
