That could be done, however you should be able to generate the
diff with my script ~eich/scripts/diff_extract.sh which can
be used as an email filter in many mailers.
I'm was not overly happy with huge diffs filling up my mailbox
so I asked if we could change this and since oone objected I
went ahead and did it. If you want a separate mailing list we
can go ahead and set it up. I haven't done so as we have too
many lists already.
