I doubt that, because keeping markers needs the same technique:
deletions interspersed with insertions, where both deletions and
insertions are as small as possible.

However, I'm working on profiling this command with better
granularity, so maybe I will have additional ideas for speeding it up.

(You should only see the slowness if there are a lot of small
differences scattered all over the buffers.  A few large differences
close together should let the function's optimized algorithm to do a
better job.)
