Currently diff-highlighting doesn't seem to be very smart.
When I attach a patch (diff file actually), I would expect each supported language to be properly highlighted as part of the diff, i.e. imagine a multi-part diff with XML, C++, C and Makefile changes - the filename is provided by the diff, so the Geshi plugin could use preexisting highlighters for each portion of the diff and only highlight the diff-specific markup differently.

Thanks

    While this is not possible with GeSHi 1.0.X due to limitations with the parser it is already planned for the rewritten 1.1.X branch.
