Does someome know where there are these files?

At every release, I check for "reasonable" diffs.  The diff between 1.10.0
and 1.11.0 was two-thirds the size of the 1.11.0 delivery -- I figured it
wasn't worth it.

If a diff is ever small enoungh, I'll post it.  I've been thinking that it
has to be less than about half the size of the delivery to be worth
posting.  If there is a demand for larger diffs, I can handle that.  If so,
what size cut-off should I use?
