Phew, this is so much boilerplate code to create all the sections and
widgets and to listen to modifications and do verifications etc. I
didn't implement such editors since years, but wonder if there are
simpler (or elegant) ways like automatic data binding between the model
and UI elements.

Not sure if this is helpful, or if they can be combined, but we have 3
code parts the compute diffs of entires:
* PartitionsDiffComputer in openldap.config.editor
* PartitionsDiffComputer in apacheds.config
* Utils.computeDiff() in ldapbrowser.core

Two ideas:
* We can include jgit/egit into Studio, that is a full git
implementation in Java and for Eclipse
* If Mavibot would support transactions/versions this may also be an
option to use
