Prompt when updating a userscript with different @include from previous

Feature Request:
Scriptish prompt dialog when override a userscript with different @include site

I can think of many reason for this:

  1. security, I gave a script unsafeWindow to some site, but a malice update could do many bad thing when they got many people installed the previous clean version affect only not important sites.

  2. Some users change script's affecting URLs, every update will override it. They have to modified it every time.

For reason 1, at least we should implement an alert,
for reason 2, ideally, I would choose whether change the @include lines.

    How about providing the option to see the script in a diff viewer ?

    If you could provide an diff viewer, that is awesome.
    But if because it's much complicated just check @include lines, pulling it back to lower priority, I rather just to make a simple alert warning to asap.

    Best regard!
