RFE: possibility to perform layout code on old code
version before comparing in VCS show changes view.

this fixes the problem of tracking changes with
reformatted sources.

I would go a little further:

RFE: provide a structural, semantic diff

There are some projects about this floating on the internet; look for 'jdiff' or something like that. The idea here is to provide a diff tool that won't show you the differences between two files based purely on the text they contains, but actually based on the class structure. So you can see which statements were added, which methods and so on.

This is probably not easy to do -- this is probably something that only JetBrains can step ahead and provide us.
