Binary document diff wrapper script

This script is converted into an executable by py2exe for use in
TortoiseHg binary packages.  It is then used by TortoiseHg as a visual
diff application for binary document types.

It takes two (diff) or four (merge) arguments, determines the file type
based on the file extension, then launches the appropriate document diff
script that THG has borrowed from the TortoiseSVN project.

This script is quite useless outside of a TortoiseHg binary install.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
