New submission from Trent W. Buck <trentbuck at gmail.com>:

darcs diff produces output like this:

--- old-Preferences/.bin/ru     2009-08-23 16:52:28.211286627 +1000
+++ new-Preferences/.bin/ru     2009-08-23 16:52:28.651287107 +1000

The timestamps SHOULD reflect the last modification without and with
(respectively) the target patch.  Using an external diff, this would
involve changing the mtime of the files that diff(1) will be called
on.  I imagine an internal diff implementation would have a much
easier time of it.
