I didn't know about `fossil/git diff -v', but in general I'd like the
idea.

one thing that I like about the VC system in Emacs is that when I'm
committing things from there I can really easily (C-c C-d) toggle the
diff of what I'm about to commit.  (this works with vc-got too because
Emacs doesn't run `got commit' until I tell it to commit, so `got diff'
still works.)

what i'd really like, even more than putting the diff in the log edit
buffer with all the consequences it has (i.e. that special line to
differentiate between the log message and the diff), would be for `got
diff' to work while `got commit' is waiting for the editor.

(blatantly a feature request since I haven't looked into how hard would
be and which consequences it would have.)

to be honest thought I got used to open an xterm with `got di | less' in
it before doing a commit from the command line.
