it would be beneficial if patch renderer, or diff renderer would allow to switch off / toggle the line numbers to allow better copy paste of the contents.

additionally copying a few lines of the old version is not so easy even out of the downloaded unified diff ;)

A third possibility, removing the line numbers in the tabular view, as suggested here, could probably be added but I don't really see the point for that: for small changes, you can already copy/paste lines one by one and for bigger changes, you don't want to copy/paste anyway but rather apply the patch automatically.
So I propose a wontfix/worksforme here.

Agree with the
wontfix. I'd suggest reading more about the patch utility.
You can also download the patch in an alternative format - such as unified diff - rather than copy 'n pasting. However, the wiki diff view does not provide any alternate format.
