It should be possible to hide diff of some of the files by default

When reviewing PR it's offen problematic if the PR contains big autogenerated changes. Especially in files like `yarn.lock` or `package-lock.json`. Those files are totally not interesting for me and I'd prefer them to be collapsed by default.

All of the files are expanded by default and with many lines to show (around few thousands) it starts to be really troublesome to navigate (page is lagging)

Can you guys make it collapsed by default and save the reviewers pain of looking at massive and not interesting diffs?

I disagree, the linked feature request is not really the same. Especially since bitbucket doesn't auto-load some files once a diff has reached a certain size. So if I have a project with files








`sourcefile1` and `sourcefile2` always get stuck with the annoying `Oops! You've got a lot of code in this diff and it couldn't load with the page. Click here to give it another chance.` message.


It seems like bitbucket should be smart enough to recognize common files like `package-lock.json` use extremely common and almost always have a very log signal:noise ratio, and collapse them accordingly. Or at least move them to the end of the diff, which presumably would make them more likely to get the `Oops!` message than the actual source code.
