I'm working on a way to take advantage of Ediff's fine highlighting

leaving only the region between BEG-B and END-B highighted.  This is
because ediff-extract-diffs first resets point in both buffers (changing
point in BUFFER-A unintentionally), then builds the diff vector by
moving by lines in each buffer.

The fix is simple, and it allows ediff-regions-internal to work with
non-overlapping regions in the same buffer: Don't set point in each
buffer until necessary:


Sorry, that patch breaks Ediff horribly.  I'll get to work on a proper
fix.

Here it is:

        * ediff-diffs.el (ediff-extract-diffs): Keep track of point in
        buffers A and B in new local variables a-prev-pt and b-prev-pt,
        in case A and B are the same; and make sure to restore point in
        buffers A and B before calling forward-line to convert lines to
        points.
