I love it and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see it available out of stash. While submitting work to dA there should be an option available for turning redlining on. That would just awesome!

It seems that the panels won't go away unless I specifically click 'cancel' in the comment field; if I leave the comment field for example, the panels will continue to be there. I suspect that's unintended, since they don't seem to work in other input fields, such as your own stashed deviation description.

On a side note, I'd love to see something like this on comments outside of, as well. It's something I've been hoping to see for quite some time, it's nice to see such a feature finally here. :D
