This patch changes colors options category layout in Options-dialog. Instead of flat list we now have top-level category "Colors" and three sub-categories. See the attached screenshot.

    While seeing in action: Is "Merge" the correct title for this colors? You see the colors only in the *editor* if you call "Compare" from a folder compare or use the option dialog (which also speaks from "compare"). So "Compare" would be maybe a better title for this colors? But what is, if we have one day also colors for folder compare? In this case the title should maybe "File Compare" to be future future-proof?

    A other alternative could be "Differences"...

    Good points. I'm reopening this for considering better name.

    I think "Differences" is good word - as the options are about differences.

    I'm not worried if we need to change some words afterwards - if we can improve the GUI we definitely should do it. Yes, it causes more work for translators, but translating couple of words isn't so much work.

    So we definitely can change strings - when we have a reason for it.
