Adds a button to the code widget to open the differencing window.
Uses the profiler to record the functions that run, then the user adds the recording to an exclude or include list. The include list has the excludes subtracted from them, then gets displayed. The lists are symbol-based to avoid capturing a function multiple times. Allows finding specific functions based on when they run.

For example, recording the player standing still then pressing exclude, followed by moving around then pressing include, will find functions related to movement and movement animations. Specifically looking for an action or event can often yield a small amount of functions being returned, which is quite useful

.The profiler is sort of hijacked for this. Building a specific routine for recording the functions might increase efficiency, but I'm not sure how to.
