our internal diff code is currently used by default. you can override
it on the command line or via a config file option. this is not v.a.p.
though. we do have an implementation of v. a. p. in the tree, but it
is not well tested, and the command line client does not use it yet
(and as far as i know there has not yet been any discussion of the best
way to work it into the interface).
