In [g]vimdiff, is it possible to show the current different line in quickfix window?

Kevin Gao
Hello friend,

In [g]vimdiff, is it possible to show the current different line in quickfix window? (or some window in the bottom). 

This is what it looks like currently:

My exception:

It's very useful to find out the difference quickly when the line is long. Some handy diff tool such as Beyond Compare has this feature.

I am not a vimscript expert. Not sure if some one has done this before???

Thanks,
Kevin
