I can't get the rdiff command to work. I haven't looked into it and just
do a standard cvs diff when I need it. I find the commit messages to be
better than most but still not enough to know what's going on. I'd vote
for including the diffs, but, as always, I'm not in core and nobody
really cares about my opinion.
