Given a sufficiently recent tla, `tla changes --diffs` will do almost
exactly what you want.  It also shows the contents of the new
.arch-ids and patch logs, which isn't really ideal, but a quick
brutalisation of this output with a text editor should do the trick.

(While I'm at it, is there any good reason for tla changes to also
give new .arch-ids and logs?  For my two main uses of this command -
looking to see what I've changed and sending patches to someone -
they just get in the way.)
