Which in this case is not even wanted. The "diff" file format hasn't changed
for many many years, and as long as we don't see issues in libdiff2 that are
fixed in a newer version, we simply don't need to update it. Any update just
brings the danger of new issues.
For svn that may be different as subversion is permanently evolving.
