diff'ng CLOBs

0.6.10 introduced a new default behavior for CLOB diff'ng. CLOBs usually represent formatted text. When diff'ng formatted text, users typically would like certain incidental aspects of the formatting to be ignored. So by default, CLOBs are now diff'd in a way that is insensitive to both *nix and Windows newlines (\n and \r, in any combination).
