Why not just have a special --with-diffutils configure option that
indicates that the internal diff library should be used? Or,
--enable-internal-diff or something like that?

Compile-time option, but certainly not run-time. (Win32 people could
have it turned on by default if brane chooses so.) +1 for merging it
in to the /trunk and make it required (for now) to explicitly enable
it at configure-time. Then, when enough people are satisfied, we can
turn that configure option on by default.

Even if we have the internal diff library, I still think we should
have support for an external diff since we might want to handle
non-text diffs with special tools. So, we'd still keep
--with-diffutils and such. Perhaps. Perhaps not. -- justin
