diff: support anchoring line(s)
Teach diff a new algorithm, one that attempts to prevent user-specified lines from appearing as a deletion or addition in the end result. The end user can use this by specifying "--anchored=<text>" one or more times when using Git commands like "diff" and "show".

+ Generate a diff using the "anchored diff" algorithm.

+This option may be specified more than once.

+If a line exists in both the source and destination, exists only once,
+and starts with this text, this algorithm attempts to prevent it from
+appearing as a deletion or addition in the output. It uses the "patience
