Well, amidst munching mince pies, I realised I hadnt yet answered
this ;)

I decided that the human-readable diff was just a html rendition
of the unified diff, and so shouldn't really have its own class
(since it is presentation layer).

There's a similar argument for the strikethrough diff (which I'm
just mucking around with on my laptop at the moment), so I wont
put it in its own class either.

I'm open to arguments either way though; do you still want to have
a set of CVSLib_diff_* classes for these?
