Activated by a third parameter (delay) on the command line.
Please test and any feedback is welcome.

pcb blinking diff
Status in PCB: Printed Circuit Board CAD package:
The current pcbdiff tool uses the colours red and blue to mark the
differences between two pcb files of the same sizes (width and
Elements common to both pcbs are presented in grey shades.
The colours red and blue can make it difficult, if not impossible, for
people impaired with a colour vision deficiency (red/green,
blue/yellow or total) to distinguish the differences between the pcbs,
thus rendering the tool less usable.
By alternating showing the first and second pcb ("blinking") in grey
shades, the differences between both pcbs can be seen without colours
or the ability to perceive colour.
