Thank you! The important is that we now have a workable patch in unified
diff format :)

For the record, when using "svn diff", you have to use "patch -p0" to
apply the resulting patch. Not -p1.

I would bet even Guido changed his habits :) Rietveld computes and
displays unified diffs as far as I remember.
