The "diff-format" output could definitely be improved.  The place to do
this is in ZWiki itself, DiffSupport:textDiff.

Also the zwiki folder property (or per-page property) "mailout_policy"
can be set to either "comments" or "edits".  Right now it is set to
"edits" so is sending out these diffs.  I find them useless, and for
most cases "comments" is appropriate.  Note that when in "comments"
mode, emails will also be sent when new pages are created, but not when
pages are edited.

Is there some way we could have a hybrid?  e.g. when a page is edited we
send out the entire page with a comment at the top "this page was
edited".  If one wants to see line-by-line changes it can always be
retreived through the zwiki interface.
