Suppose I'm looking at a diff where someone moves 10 lines from fileA.c to fileB.c.  I'd like to look at sections of those files side by side, so that I can make sure nothing changed during the move. 

It'd be cool if I could, for example, select a chunk from left column ("Revision X") and a chunk from the right column ("New Change"), and then have RB render an instant side-by-side diff between the two.

We'd like to expand the moved-lines detection to work across files, but there's a lot of computation overhead that will require some sort of queuing/background-process system. Thanks for the report!
