AFAIK, there is no way to, say, incrementally or selectively copy parts of a
single diff from, say, A to B.

You can, however, quit ediff, narrow the buffers to the parts you're interested
in, and then use ediff again. Just a workaround, but it can sometimes be useful,
especially if ediff doesn't quite see things the way you do. ;-)

Perhaps someone else has another suggestion.
