Line Filters (regular expressions) are really not easy to
manage. They have to be typed if you want to make
one comparison with custom line filters, and the old
values must be typed again after this comparison.

The file filters interface could be imitated for line filters.
+ allow to open one file with a custom line filter (new
field in the open dialog).

Another option is to use projects. In my opinion, it is
heavy, and the simple open dialog is often the best.
(Projects are good, but we must keep a simple interface
for simple merging).

    Agreed that UI should be better. I have a patch (#833180
    Filters dialog) to move file filters to own dialog. Thinking
    about this, maybe we could move linefilters to same dialog,
    as own tab for example.

    One big improvement would be to have linefilters in listview
    with checkboxes. So you can select easily which filters to
    use. I really missed this possibility when testing
    linefilters for bug #833553 Regular Expressions filter
    doesn't work.

    Last version of my patch "[ 833180 ] Filters dialog" moves
    line filters to "Filters" dialog. Line filters are still
    added to editbox, but I have some ideas for improvements:
    * change editbox to listview
    * add checkbox to select active filters
    * column for comments
    * save filters to file
    * load filters from file
    * one "test" editbox would be nice, so that user can type
    some text to editbox and see if regexp matches that text
