Lord knows what the point of that link even is... I clicked on it only
because "Raw" suggested that it would yield the "real" text/plain diff
instead of a fancy HTML rendition.

I appreciate the offer, but a database would be overkill for my use
case. I'm not in my company's IT department, and metamorphosing host
keys on those 6000+ hosts are waaaay out of my purview. (I can't get
too worked up over the security implications, either, since much worse
than that is officially tolerated.)

If anything, the most I would do is put together a Perl script to merge
an old and new known_hosts file, such that new entries override old
ones, and old ones that don't have a newer replacement are kept.
