With the new options "--src-prefix=<prefix>", "--dst-prefix=<prefix>"
and "--no-prefix", you can now control the path prefixes of the diff
machinery.  These used to by hardwired to "a/" for the source prefix
and "b/" for the destination prefix.

Initial patch by Pascal Obry.  Sane option names suggested by Linus.
