yes seeing the diffs on the ml is absolutely essential
am i right in the assumtation that the mails are generatd by
if so then i think that
-git diff-tree --stat --summary --find-copies-harder $oldrev..$newrev
+git diff-tree --stat -p --summary --find-copies-harder $oldrev..$newrev

will show the diffs
