We just discussed this at ZuriHac: we don't see the need for this
feature because you can do the same thing with `darcs diff'.  If
whatsnew could use a custom diff command it also wouldn't really give
you information about "whats new" because it might not consider
whitespace changes which nevertheless would show up during record.

Thanks!  The best implementation is no implementation.
