If you're going to do this send the patch properly in the same way
patches are normally sent.  Take a step back and think about this for a
minute - why would it be a good idea to send these incremental patches
in a different format which requires the person applying the patch to
hand edit things to strip out the noise?

It makes it harder to work out which versions of things to apply and
causes issues for tools when doing things like applying from a mailbox.
