And completely unhelpful to anyone who's ever used any other VCS.
I hardly think the command name `diff' is so bad that it has to be
removed despite the fact that it's what everyone is going to expect.
Indeed, I rather prefer `diff' over `changes --diffs', even if you
don't consider the length difference.  (I also realize that Miles did
not indent to start an argument about this, and for all I know loathes
the `changes --diffs' spelling as much as anyone.)

Awesome!  I think that's one of the most annoying things about tla.
