while looking into issues found by jenkins, we sometimes wanted to find all
packages that have differences in a certain file/path or where the path matches
a specific pattern or where the diff matches a certain regex.

Maybe a text based format could use more easily greppable symbol sequences that
are unlikely to appear anywhere in the diff to help this use case?

I didn't implement a machine readable output yet because I was lacking ideas of
how one would represent a diff in a machine readable manner. The current
two-column output is suboptimal for that.
