Hello,

I have modified Zenmap to read the new (still unmerged) Ndiff output. I
have two ideas for viewing it and I want to know which you prefer.

http://www.bamsoftware.com/wiki/Nmap/ZenmapDiff

Option A just reads Ndiff's text output and shows it on the screen with
a bit of color. Option B reads Ndiff's XML output, rebuilds the diff,
and displays it with more varied markup. The linked page also has an
example of the current output for comparison.

Honestly, the option A (text) looks fine to me, and is presumably
trivial to implement compared to B.  I do think that your color coding
of the output helps a lot.

Unless you can think of a desired significant feature or output
flourish which can only be done with approach B, my vote is for the
simpler Option A.  I see the new ndiff text output as a big
improvement over the previous version.

Cheers,
Fyodor
