Have you gotten the cute "the 3 option is not necessary anymore, as it 
is the default" *error* when trying to do diff -u3p?
How useless of an error can you get?  It couldn't just do my diff 
anyway? It has to just bomb out until i remove the 3 (which is 
necessary on some platforms, as well)
/me smacks the coreutils and diffutils maintainers around with a spoon.
