I don't see him suggesting that.  FWIW, I would also like a feature
like the one agrawal requests.  Essentially, just like you can
(i)nsert subdirectories to a single dired buffer or have all the
subdirectories and their subdirectories be inserted by adding -R to
ls switches, there should be a way to have a whole directory tree
(or just have few specific subdirectories inserted) in a single
ediff session buffer instead of one ediff session buffer per

In addition, a command to simply replace session's file in
directory B with the file in directory A (and vice versa) would be
nice.  It should preferably work so that one can mark several
sessions and then apply this operation to all of them.
