But I don't think this patch does quite what your coworker wants,
since this still considers those lines different. It just changes
the alignment points in the diff to make them (we hope) better align
If you have gnu diff installed, you can get what they want with
bzr diff --diff-options -w
it might be nice to have built in though. Also we should add a short
option for --diff-options.
