          list all signs in current file

  Global Variables:
      g:SD_backupdir (default:'~/.vim-sign-diff')

          g:SD_comp_with is List of two items.
          valid items are 'buffer'(same as 1), 'written',
          or number of revisions to revert.

          (if this value is default)
          $ diff written buffer > output

          0 to update each autocmd.
