Bug#128818: c implementation

hi folks,

i am working on a c implementation of the code above, as we will need
this for inclusion into apt (and some other stuff). if anybody else is
working on it, please tell me so we don't duplicate work.

the big question is however how to do the ed part. having full ed
compatibility is imho undesirable because it is very complex and brings
security problems with it. can we agree an a limited subset? for example
no lines that start with a dot (should not happen in packages files
anyway) and the hunks must be ordered by line number (good for
single-pass processing, present in the current diffs)? 

cu  robert
