IDM's UltraCompare is very similar. I checked out Beyond Compare and
decided on IDM's because I liked the GUI better but I think they are
very similar in pricing and what they do.

I use Scooter Software's Beyond Compare 2 as my diff/merge application,
and I use it to partially revert changes from within a diff all the
time.  It's Windows only, but it's really nice.  I'd highly recommend
it.  I find the licensing terms really attractive - starting at
$30/user, and the most you can pay is $2500 for a world-wide license
that covers all employees everywhere.

Here's one feature from emacs+cvs that I really miss.  I haven't come
across anything similar in the perforce world, so I'm posting here in
hopes someone can point me in the right direction.

I habitually review diffs of all modified files before check-in.  When
using emacs' cvs mode, there is a way to go through the diff one chunk
at a time much like the perforce diff tool.  However, I can also
selectively revert a chunk if I change my mind.  Morever, since emacs
is an editor I can actually edit the file right there.

Using P4V, I can diff a file before submitting using CTRL-D, but this
is a read-only view.  I think I could achieve my goals if the merge
tool came up instead.

Any ideas?

P.S.  Is this list configured to silently drop messages that have been
