I think it would be very useful if I could highlight

reduced history view with only those edits that changed
that part of the page. What sorts of indexes would be needed
to facilitate such a search? Has anybody already implemented
this as a separate tool?
The New York Times has made some progress in this area. Of course,
their articles don't get edited the way Wikipedia ones do...
I've tried using WikiBlame a few times, but it operates at the
level of strings, rather than sections/paragraphs/sentences, so, like
you, I'm left to do most of my digging by hand. Glad to know I'm not
alone in my pain. :-)
