automate content_diff by a generic
automate diff command
which outputs the complete changeset (including node adds, drops,
renames and attribute changes) in an generic basic_io format. The
actual diff is included in a
data stanza in unified diff format.
There hasn't yet been
an consensus if this should really be the "official" format mtn should
use to express external changesets - primarily because once this is
set into stone we certainly want an
automate apply_diff command to
complement this functionality. We also still have to find a way to
express binary deltas within this new format to make it really useful
apply_diff use case.
Status: Stalled for quite a long time, as above
