I'm one of the guilty parties (as is Gavin, I'd imagine). As I explained 
in an earlier mail to -patches, the reason I've been submitting unified 
diffs is that Gavin and I have been using the Monotone version control 
system for development, and at present it only generates unified diffs. 
I've been meaning to submit a fix for that -- I'll send the Monotone 
folks a patch adding context diff support on Monday or Tuesday. So I 
pledge to stop sending unified diffs ASAP :)

(BTW, I actually find unified diffs much easier to read. But since the 
consensus is apparently to prefer context diffs, I'm happy to oblige.)
