Description

By default, wsdiff ignores certain ELF sections. This is a sane default. However, there are times when it would be nice to compare specific sections. For example, when 4457 was being developed, it would have been nice to force checking of the comment section.

I'm thinking that providing two options -I and -E to respectively include and exclude sections would be a decent interface. For example:

$ wsdiff -vV -r results -I .comment proto.old/ proto/
