Overdiff is a diff implementation based heavily on python 2.6's difflib and even copying code from there.

Instead of returning the diff as text output, it returns data structures describing changes. It also allows specification of a different threshold for matching interline changes.

It is an exploratory project, which means its API is in constant flux. Especially the overdiff.overdiff function will change. A lot.
