What's wrong with the current -x argument though? Admittedly it ought
to have a longname as well (probably --diff-cmd-args, as the OP
suggested), but it'll get the job done.

There's no point in breaking compatibility for an existing parameter to
add functionality that's already available via a different parameter.
