Unidiffs are easier to read for small changes, but when the changes get
large, diff isn't able to figure out which lines in the new file correspond
to which lines in the old file, and it's impossible to read.  With context
diffs, you can figure out the correspondence for yourself.

Yep, but -p by itself implies -c.

 Jason> "ncp_convert" is an unhelpful name.
