What Greg wanted, and what I implemented, was trimming the diffs if
they were larger than x lines, where x currently == 1000.  In that
case, we trim the diffs to 40 lines.  This doesn't help you if there
are tons of smaller diffs in a digest.  I'm happy to tweak the numbers
if people want, but I'm not going to do any significant work on the
script (no time).
