Ack! So this is what happens when you submit a patch, and then talk
about it more than 2 years later. Turns out preserving compatibility
with existing code wasn't my goal at all. Rather, the goal was to avoid
an infinite loop that results if (diff-hunk-next) unconditionally uses
the new logic:

    diff-hunk-next         calls
    diff--wrap-navigation  calls
    diff-bounds-of-hunk    calls
    diff-beginning-of-hunk calls

Yes. Agreed. Revised patch attached. I'll try to respond to any comments
quickly so that we all can remember what this is about.

Subject: [PATCH] Improved diff-mode navigation/manipulation

Navigation and use of diff buffers had several annoying corner cases that this
patch fixes. These corner cases were largely due to inconsistent treatment of
file headers. Say you have a diff such as this:

 --- aaa
 +++ bbb
 @@ -52,7 +52,7 @@

 --- ccc
 +++ ddd
 @@ -608,6 +608,6 @@
 @@ -654,7 +654,7 @@

The file headers here are the '---' and '+++' lines. With the point on such a
line, hunk operations would sometimes refer to the next hunk and sometimes to
the previous hunk. Most of the time it would be the previous hunk, which is
not what the user would expect. This patch consistently treats such headers as
the next hunk. So with this patch, if the point is on the '--- ccc' line, the
point is seen as referring to hunk3.

Specific behaviors this fixes are:

1. It should be possible to place the point in the middle of a diff buffer,
and press M-k repeatedly to kill hunks in the order they appear in the buffer.
With the point on hunk1, M-k M-k would kill hunk1 then hunk2. With the point
on hunk3, it would kill hunk3 then hunk4; this is fine. However, with the
point on hunk2, it'd kill hunk2 then hunk1. This is fixed by this patch.

2. Similarly, it should be possible to apply hunks in order. Previously with
the point at the start, C-c C-a would apply the hunk1, then move the point to
the first @@ header, and thus C-c C-a would try to apply the same hunk again.
