That seems like it depends on the internal representation of a diff.
Right now it's just a matter of walking a list and checking flags, but
that's not the only possible representation. I think it's much cheaper
to take a pool which we don't currently need than it is to find the door
shut on performing memory allocations if we need to do so in the future.
