aaah, right... :S
I usually use -k in the inclusive way (i.e.: "run only this test here")
and totally forgot I can actually write some more complex in it..

probably, maybe.

That makes for the two of us ;)

Yeah, feedback welcome :)
I personally foresee diffoscope will become non-native one day.  If
anything, because we actually target a lot wider usage outside of
debian, we want contributes from outside, etc.  It makes life easier for
me, maybe for others too, but it also brings political issues, that at
some point might overweight the advantages brought to me.
