Here's how things went, AFAIR:
- someone asked for diff options in `tla changes' (not the first such
  request, by far).
- someone else said "omygod, no way, this will mean changesets with
  non-standard diff content, all hell will break lose".
- Miles and I said "no biggie, it's harmless and might even be useful".

Nowhere did anyone request non-standard difs in archive changesets.
Of course, maybe at some point someone will ask for it, but I see evidence
that it will happen, and no good reason why accepting diff-options for
`changes' should lead to accepting diff options for `commit'
