It doesn't look like they have it now, but they also need a BSD replacement
for diff:

From their Contributing page:

    License. OpenCM overall is currently distributed under GPL because
    we haven't replaced libdiff yet. Replacing libdiff is high on our
    enhancement priority list (and not just for licensing reasons). All
    patches to OpenCM should be supplied under BSD terms. We regret that
    patches more than a few lines cannot be incorporated without a signed
    copyright agreement, and we don't have one yet. We're working on that.


    A BSD-licensed replacement for libdiff -- specifically for
    merge3() and for two-way diff(). Ideally these would operate on
    the current Buffer object, and would output unified context diff
   (diff -u) format.

Maybe it would be a good idea to team up with them to develop a diff that
lots of people could use.
