Hi Martin,

    In response to http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?31291 I'm currently
    considering making -K the default for wdiff. 

Sounds right.

    Does anyone know of a system where "wdiff -t" produces a desirable
    result and "wdiff -tK" fails to achieve the same result?

Not me.  I expect Francois was working around some known buggy system
circa 1990, no longer relevant ...

    Or can anyone think of a good reason why wdiff should send ti/te
    termcap strings?


    According to my termcap man page, those are only for applications
    that do cursor movement, so they shouln't be needed imo.

That's my understanding too.
