Coincidence: I fixed this patch yesterday.
- integrated changes we introduced in 21.4a-1
- wrote a new script which automates the building of snapshots
from the CVS trunk and the packaging from my Bazaar archive
I need to test changes and I currently have a slow machine
(it takes 50 minutes to build packages).

Forget about tla. Use bazaar 1.3.2 from debian unstable.
'baz diff' is what you want.

I have no idea currently. How about looking into emacsen-common?
