Tom Lord:

These headers are not heavily used.  Their primary use is, for human
consumption (e.g., grep for a filename).

I was planning on eventually writing a command that would examine patch logs
to tell you in what revisions a file was modified (added, etc). What do
you think?

It might be a duplication of effort-- I've already got code that does that:

$fai revisions --modified libarch/cmdutils.c -s
    nicer error messages from get (aaron via rbtcollins)
    fix bogus format string
    error message niceness (aaron via rbtcollins)
    Gobs of extra checks/small fixes/typos (Bentley)
    Formatting fixes for previous revision

It's part of Fai, which is gpled, and is available as iter_changedfile. Doesn't match on file additions or deletions, yet.

There's also a variant that matches revisions that added a line's contents to a file.
