Just overwrite but don't check it in. This recital.txt is in the lower

The command should be C-x v = which I have arranged so that it launches
ediff for me with the two buffers arranged one below the other. (I have
some customizations and I can dig out my customization if you need. My
customizations pre-date Emacs-24.1) But Emacs-24.1 does have a
vc-ediff. So I believe C-x v = can rebound to vc-ediff if it isn't

Also note the cursors in the two windows.

My setup is so old (and is so part of the way I do commits for as long
as I remember) that I confused myself into thinking that they are part
of Emacs. I am not to blame here, only my memory.

Correct. Ediff is not needed. But it is convenient. No C-x C-fs twice
over or splitting windows (atleast in my case)

We can make a feature request.
