If you're going to use something beyond pure unidiff, I'd encourage
you to look at git-diffs, which are used by at least Mercurial and Git
(no idea about Bazaar), and maybe even add some simple extensions to
that format for directory entries and properties if needed. It's been
very nice to have a format that has the extra metadata, but still
works with patch(1) most of the time.
