/package-list/proposed should include debdiffs

It would be very helpful if, when http://debathena.mit.edu/package-list/proposed is generated, we could also generate debdiffs between proposed and their corresponding packages in production, so that we could more easily glance at the differences.

In this context, I assume debdiffs means between the two source packages, and not the two binary ones, right? (One of these is easier to hook into the existing package-list infrastructure than the other).

I started working on this, and then realized I don't get "debdiff" on scripts. So we should set up a dpkg-devel locker, or run this on demeter, or start our own competing Debathena-based Scripts project, or something.

This is not the same thing, but package-list.pl now has links to changelogs.
