"Nice" diff window from "Checkin project" Window

i'm trying to modify dash's excellent perforce VCS plugin. on the window where you review the project to check in, if you double-click on a file, you get a diff window. however, it's not the nice, fully featured diff window with the ability to undo the diffs interactively. i'd like to replace it. i've tried, but can't seem to figure out how. any ideas?

Really glad to hear someone is taking it over. Both Perforce plugins are nice but this one seems to fit me better.
While you're at it I have a couple RFEs.
1. List the files that are updated on a sync in the messages window similar to what P4Win does. I hate the fact that I can't see what's being updated.
2. Put "Sync Project" in a different thread. IDEA hangs if I do a sync project that has a lot of updates.

Thanks and good luck.

i'm not really taking it over, just fixing what bugs me. but if i can get help fixing what bugs me, maybe i can fix what bugs you, too.

As a user you can replace it with "IDE Settings -> General-> Use external
tool to compare files" option. But there is no way to replace it using
openapi (at the moment). Maybe the best way is your description how should
we modify current diff window to make it be "nice"?
