The voting has stopped, with the "yeah" vote slightly head of the
"nay" vote.  We'll go with context diffs, and we'll be implementing
Greg Stein's approach with the xml-checkins list: truncating diffs to
H number of lines at the top and T number of lines at the bottom, so
as not to overwhelm incoming email.

I'll try to get this going sometime today (no promises).  You'll
likely see a number of tests coming through python-checkins in the
meantime.  I'll send a message out when it's done.
