See the modified class/method in diffs

Bug #607707 reported by Andrea Corbellini

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Git has a really interesting and useful feature: in the diff it shows near the line numbers also the modified class/method name. For example:

--- a/
+++ b/
@@ -10,4 +10,4 @@ class TestClass(object):
     def abc(self):
- print 'Hello'
+ print 'Hello, world'

It'd be really cool to have this in Bazaar too.

You can get this with 'bzr diff --diff-options -p'. (This depends on having gnu diff on your system.) Perhaps this should be on by default or builtin or easier to spell or controlled by an option.
