The problem was/is not the diff format---I read diffs every day---but
that it seemed like the base for the diffs of files which were new to
my working copy was not my working copy, but rather some intermediate
state in the four changesets I merged. Hence, I was seeing as part of
the trailing and leading context code I'd never seen before, because
one of the other (earlier?) changesets introduced it. Strange.
