This should be relatively straightforward to fix. I'll ping again in a day
or two when it's done. I expect we should be able to get comparable, if not
smaller size than the old style pages.

I'm not 100% sure. Dirk can confirm, but I believe it will use whichever one
is on the system. So, if the bot has pretty-patch, but not wdiff, it would
only show the pretty-patch link. The Chromium bot I linked to has wdiff, but
not pretty-patch, hence the wdiff links.
