Oh! Yeah, that looks nice. Though looking through that[1] it seems not yet
optimal to me.

So we have 2 additional colors for moved code to differentiate between
adjacent moved blocks. However in this implementation we toggle between
these two colors even if we're not adjacent, such that the moved_alternative
color shows up quite frequently.

So if we have normal lines in between, we may want to reset to "default"
moved color.
