New submission from anatoly techtonik <techtonik at gmail.com>:

The patch inserts \t character between filename and timestamp in unified 
and context diff headers. 

According to specification by Guido Van Rossum =)

And de-facto output from various tools

And the common sense
--- that it is easier to split	this stuff
+++ than this one into filename + timestamp

+++ trunk/diff.py	Sun Dec 27 15:46:58 2009
