I guess my .cvsrc wasn't hoarded on my laptop when I made that previous
diff. Redid the patch using,

 cvs rdiff -u -rc5_3_2 -rc5_3_3 coda > diff-5.3.2-5.3.3

and put it up on ftp. Shouldn't a non unidiff patch work just as
well, except for the horrible readability? I myself prefer unidiff
format because it is easier on the eyes.
