Hi, all:

Borrowing liberally from Jason's jg_tools, I had a first go at 
implementing "b4 diff". It's pretty slick when it works, for which it 
currently needs to be able to find the exact indexes for the files being 
modified. I found that having linux-next in my remotes helped to get 
most of those blobs into my local tree.

I would be happy if you poke at it some and let me know how it's working 
for you and what output improvements you can suggest.

Example:

$ b4 diff 1587451187-6889-1-git-send-email-masonccyang@mxic.com.tw

Success, you may now run:
