Subject: Hover over and item in a page to see who edited and when
Maybe this exists, maybe its not even possible.  But I would like to be able to hover over any item/text in a page and have a simple popup of who made that edit and the timestamp?  I know it could get real spammy, but perhaps if the hover delay was longer than a few ms it wouldn't be too bad?

I can see how this might work, and how it could be useful.

However, there is a significant challenge in designing this, both in the abstract, and in the technical implementation.

How exactly should it work? For instance, if three people have edited the same paragraph over the last 18 months since article creation, what do you show, and how? Do you go down to individual sentences, or even words? What about content which was removed?

Also: what is it about the current diff viewer functionality that you find inadequate? For me, the way it displays revision information is useful already.

For the avoidance of doubt, I'm not saying your proposal is a bad idea, but that there is already some quite powerful related functionality.
