Thanks Luca for your ideas. I finally choose B (as Vincent also
suggested), even if this is a little heavy in my opinion. We can always
improve it later.
I just put in production the merged/diff functionalities. There is still
a patch from Og in Bugzilla to provide a classical diff. I'll see if I
can add an option somewhere for accessing it.
And we also have to provide means to show diff with other files.
Hope you'll find this useful.
