When a file name contains an unusual character like a newline or
white space, `diff -r' generates a patch that
parse. The problem is with format of
diff output, not just with
patch, because with odd enough file names one can cause
diff to generate a patch that is syntactically correct but
patches the wrong files. The format of
diff output should be
extended to handle all possible file names.
