As some may have noticed, initial support for this went live this

Some notes:

- the output is current plain text, with no formatting

- there's no filtering of "interesting" content; all architectures for
which there are packages have a corresponding binary debdiff link

- as a result of invoking debdiff once per architecture, passing a list
of "old" and "new" .deb files, the output contains a single copy of
sections such as "Files in second set of .debs but not in first", rather
than the information being attached to the binary package concerned
