I have some ideas for using a histogram diff to improve content merges,
which fundamentally relies on the idea of a histogram.  Since the diffs
are never displayed to the user but just used internally for merging,
the typical user preference shouldn't matter anyway, and I want to make
sure that all my testing works with this algorithm.

Granted, I don't yet know if those ideas will pan out and I haven't even
tried any of them out yet, but it's easy to change the diff algorithm in
the future if needed or wanted.  For now, just set it to histogram.
