This is just stopgap for right now.  We can get better I think by doing
diffs of the trees themselves.  That is why we generate them and keep
them around.  The idea is to do a bdiff on them inorder to provide
updates to base systems.  Of course there are issue we need to work out
like a user changing configuration files.  If C-D can come up with
something in the meantime, that would be great.  I'm doing a build with
a smaller changeset tonight.  We will see if the diff still remains
