-0 eric.smith     for concerns about people relying on current behaviour
-0 brian.curtin   the same
counterarg: current behavior will be broken anyway with compatibility fix in r80004

+0 r.david.murray   the policy that we shouldn't change stdlib interfaces without a strong reason, but Tools is not stdlib

+0.5 merwok   as diff.py can not be considered unix diff replacement

Wouldn't it be nice if you haven't need to say your tool how to do the thing you like?

Don't you want to add a recommendation to use diff.py tool so that Windows users can also send patches?
