Also note that `diff-mode', which is what VC diffs are `colorized' with,
also offers many useful features for manipulating diffs -- navigation,
applying/unapplying of hunks, format conversion, direction reversal, and
even sane editing of the diff file [it automatically adjusts the line
counts for you].  It's quite snazzy...

There was some small issue that interfered with it being used for `M-x
diff' output, but my vague memory is that it was pretty trivial (my
recollection is that I thought the proper solution was to say `fuck it'
and use diff-mode anyway).

Perhaps Stefan can fill in the details.
