Add option to ignore whitespace changes
Applicable to unified diff command, show changes, annotate
We currently use the Menees tools for our internal diff viewer. This option will be enabled when we switch to the subversion diff library for creating the diff.
This issue is fixed for the annotate viewer.
Visual Studio 11 has a builtin diff viewer, which will automatically be used instead of the Menees tools. This diff viewer has many new options.
When auto-beautifying of a foreign source-code regarding indentations is done by your programming environment while you fix a bug, it will cause annotate to mark every line changed with that bug-commit and make annotate almost useless. :-(
Optionally ignoring whitespace for annotate would be really really an annotate-usability-boost! :-)
