A parallel concern is whether a diff should be reversible. That is a
very nice feature of unified diff - you can apply it in either
direction. Providing the same ability with an 'augmented diff' would
require spelling out the full contents of deleted files and dirs, as
well as the full contents of a replaced binary file. Worth it? I
don't know.
