I'm aware of patchutils. (Check the 0.2.22 Changelog ;) ) However,
splitdiff doesn't do what I'm after, from my initial look. Though now
that I think about it, it suggests an alternative solution. A
'shatterdiff' that created one diff file per hunk in a patch would give
me basically what I want. I could then use directories and 'mv' to sort
out the parts. Repetative calls to 'combinediff' would suffice for
cleaning up the ensuing mess, I think. Hmm... That would get me to the
hunk level, but not the sub-hunk, though editdiff/rediff might help there.
