! Parallel -V output has some mixing [bug karen]
Need to audit that all diagnostics is issued atomically via diag_record.
+- Save diff output for {stdout,stderr}.diff [feature karen]
+ Now we have diff output first, then the error. This often messes up emacs
+ error navigation. Also, not atomic.
+ So instead we should save the output to a .diff file (could be useful for
+ later examination), print the error (including an info line with where is
+ the diff), and then (a fragment of) the diff. Theoretically, the .diff
+ can be large, so probably makes sense to limit it to a few KB?
