Sounds like a bad idea to make the "Index:" line gratuitously different from that produced by CVS. If your script parses the header lines of "cvs diff" or "svn diff" output, then it is likely that others are doing so too, and changing the format would break them.

It would make more sense to add an extra line corresponding to CVS's "RCS file:" line. I can see that this would be useful, though I don't need it myself.
