I think we need to have someone specify all requirements for the patch
format that come from the fact that we version directory trees. If
with those requirements the output cannot be applied with patch(1),
but *can* look a lot like a unidiff, then I think this discussion is
moot.

What I'd like is someone (Charles?) to come up with a proposal which
addresses all situations that can arise from versioning trees. Then we
can discuss that proposal - instead of the current situation of
venting preferences - and after discussing, we probably have a vote on
it, because this is one of those subjects where you can't make
everybody happy... (IMO)

bye,

Erik.
