WISH: set word-diff-regex for/in gitk

Dear developers,

I am a daily use of gitk; I use the "color words" diff option most often.
I have found no way to set --word-diff-regex for gitk, or to make the command

git config --global diff.wordRegex '.'

have effect on the diffs shown in gitk.

I think the value of --word-diff-regex is effectively discarded in the block at line 215 of gitk-git/gitk,
but it seems that other changes are necessary for the parameter to take any effect.

Being able to configure word-diff-regex would be much appreciated!
