[cfe-dev] JDiff plugin suggestion

It would be really nice if I could use the already very useful Jdiff 
plugin to also do a diff on blocks of code rather than just on files. I 
know I can copy the blocks of code to some empty file and save it under 
a name in order to JDiff, but this is a PITA compared to the ability to 
just highlight some code blocks and then ask JDiff to do a diff on them. 
I have often wanted to diff some blocks of code, where just manually 
looking at them to see the differences is much hard work. Since Dale 
Anson, who appears to be the maintainer of JDiff, is pretty active in 
JEdit, this message is directed mainly to him.

Has anyone else found the functionality I mention desirable ? Is there 
another JEdit plugin that can do what I want ? Thanks for listening ! 
JEdit as always is great !
