[BusyBox] [PATCH] New comm applet

from reading this mailing list, I discovered that comm was needed to
build Perl, and that no version was currently available in Busybox.
I've written a small version based on comm in the GNU coreutils, with
all features implemented.
However, reading busybox/docs/new-applet-HOWTO.txt, it's not entirely
clear how to create the diff file required, so what I've done is
create a patch file for each changed file, and bzip2ed all of them
together. It should be fairly easy to apply, but if a resend is needed
then that doesn't present a problem.
Also, would a small less implementation be useful? If so, I'll be glad
to start work on one.
