This patch is a breakdown of the earlier patch https://phab.mercurial-scm.org/D5514
There <https://phab.mercurial-scm.org/D5514> I have detailed why is this required.
In short, the diff output of tests is a bit ugly compared to what hg diff does, which is much nicer.
I am thinking of putting that descriptive commit message in the patch 2/2.
