Actually, smerge-mode (take a look at smerge-refine) does
character-granularity and it wasn't more work (quite the opposite,

It usually works great, but it turns out that character granularity
sometimes fails spectacularly (diff gets confused by some apparent
similarity somewhere and ends up getting completely out of sync).

It'd probably be best to layer the diffs: first do a word-granularity diff
and then do a char-granularity diff within words.  But maybe that'd be
too slow.
