This feature was added in 01143847db (add--interactive:
allow custom diff highlighting programs, 2016-02-27) but
never tested. Let's add a basic test.
Note that we only apply the filter when color is enabled,
so we have to use test_terminal. This is an open limitation
explicitly mentioned in the original commit. So take this
commit as testing the status quo, and not making a statement
on whether we'd want to enhance that in the future.
