chunk selection: Allow filtering of blocks in the diff view
Created originally on Bitbucket by DaveInCaz (David Hollman)
If it were possible to automatically select/unselect blocks in the diff view by criteria - or even to hide/unhide/ignore them - that would be a huge time saver.
Examples would be to ignore / filter out whitespace-only changes, or capitalization-only changes.
In my case we work with a lot of VB6 code where the IDE inexplicably will change case of certain keywords. This pollutes the diff with incredible amounts of noise.
