Taking Tim Starling's feedback on Gerrit into account, I've inserted named anchors in the diff output for moved paragraphs. The + and - symbols are replaced with "left shift" (<<) and "right shift" (>>) symbols. Hyperlinks allow to move between source and destination paragraphs. This is a good solution because
- it shows which paragraphs were moved, even if they weren't changed
- it's plain text, so it can be searched for in the browser
The code is straightforward and doesn't have performance implications, so it doesn't require a separate patch set.
First, a huge thank you for working on showing moves in diff! YEAY!
This is minor, but the example links use a curved arrow to mark moved paragraphs... that arrow is a bit strange and confusing at first sight. I would suggest replacing it with up and down arrows, pointing toward the copy in the other column.
