The unidiff application code already does adds and deletes (though
adds are broken right now), so to a really small extent it is already
doing things needed for git diff extensions.

It should not be too hard to extend the diff parser and the application
logic to properly use git diff extensions. Since you're already working
on bug fixes for that code anyway, I guess this would be a nice long-term
project you could help with. And you don't have to do all of it on your
own, we can work on it together. We can take it slow, milestone 1.8 or
later, there's absolutely no need to rush.

Let's take it step-by-step and get the known bugs fixed, first :)
I'd like to get those fixed by 1.7.0.
