This may not be quite what you're looking for, but what I have done
in similar situations is to rename all the conflicting symbols in
the "from" buffer to the names used in the "to" buffer, then execute
":diffu". Then I can more easily see the differences I'm really
When I'm done editing, I save the changes to the "to" file but
discard the changes made in the "from" buffer.
