♥ the short desc.  Please keep it for the archive :)

Highlighting changes inside the line is a massive improvement.

There's an implementation of this in "git" itself already, named
diff-highlight.  Alas, either I'm a complete idiot, or its documentation is
not quite adequate -- some time ago I wasted over an hour trying to get that
implementation to work, without success.

So... if this fancy version is better and/or is equipped with working basic
instructions, it'd be great to have it!
