difftool wrapper

When we want to use a external diff tool, git doen't help us to use textconv feature; Therefore, out wrapper script should grasp textconv configuration and use it. This difftool wrapper supports diffmerge only.

If you are on diffmerge, change configation like this:

git config --global diff.tool=diffmerge
git config --global difftool.diffmerge.cmd "difftool diffmerge \$LOCAL \$REMOTE"

This configuration for git difftool only. SourceTree require additional configation:

git config --global difftool.sourcetree.cmd "difftool diffmerge \$LOCAL \$REMOTE"
