Indeed - thanks, Joerg, you are making a huge difference.

I don't know if it's just me, but I *much* preferred the old diff-style
to the horrible unified diff. I don't get a good idea of what's changed
here, the textual context is not necessary, and, IMO, hides information.
My eyes have to scroll up and down above to find the columns to compare.
I like to support progressive causes, and I don't like to oppose change,
but I'm having real problems with this one.
