Only use section in conflict resolution if possible
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Motivation
Sometimes people both write in the exact same section, not touching any of the text elsewhere. When it comes to an edit conflict, though, they are presented with the whole page, which makes it much harder to navigate in.

Task
Change the TwoColConflict special page so that it only puts the section in question into the text editor.

N.B: We can only work on section level, if both people have touched NOTHING but the one section the conflict happened in. All other cases should behave the current way

We decided against implementing this behavior, since it might be very confusing to users that sometimes they are seeing the whole text and sometimes only parts. The anger about seeing the whole text will likely overshadow the joy of sometimes only seeing the relevant section.
