That's not necessarily a reason. Model-View-Controller is all about 
_seperating_ the presentation layer, but the presentation layer is still 
something that you design - there's some logic there, especially in 
representing diffs - so I think there's a good reason to put different views 
into their own CVSLib_diffView_* classes.
