They appear to be future strings.  Most of them refer to unimplemented
features (when the options are used, they currently call the
UNIMPLEMENTED macro).  I believe that the previous maintainer created
these to guide his implementation of mdiff.  Eventually I will go
through the options and see what I find to be useful to implement,
re-adding the help strings as I go.

Thanks for letting me know about this.  I will make sure that this is
in the 0.5.94 release.  Note that, due to a plethora of good fixes
suggested by Bruno, 0.5.94 may take a week or two to release.
