Well, that's not a hard-and-fast rule, just a preference.  At least for
me, unidiff is vastly harder to read than cdiff for anything much beyond
one-line changes.  (For one-liners it's great ;-), but beyond that it
intermixes old and new lines too freely.)  That's not merely an
impediment to quick review of the patch; if there's any manual
patch-merging to be done, it significantly increases the risk of error.

I don't recall that we've rejected any patches lately just because they
were unidiffs.  But I'd be sad if a large fraction of incoming patches
started to be unidiffs.
