I'm maintaining a plugin script (in PHP) for 2 different versions of ExpressionEngine, a popular commercial CMS. In one version, PHP cache functionality is accessed by "$SESS->cache", which in the other, by "$this->EE->session->cache". Obviously, WinMerge sees these as differences. I'd love to be able to indicate that these string pairs are to be considered equivalent to each other for purposes of comparison.
I imagine this would be useful in many situations, such as About Us pages containing email addresses of organizations that have local branches in different countries (eg. 'email@example.com' would be equivalent to 'firstname.lastname@example.org'), or perhaps even different spellings of words for different target audiences (eg. 'color' vs 'colour').
