Little things that matter in language design
Maybe keep stupid patch (line-by-line) but have smart diff that understands the language and
parses by tokens not lines? Patchfiles would still be noisy, but humans would ignore that and
look at output of smart diff to see what had really changed.

But that doesn't fix your pre- and post- de-K&R problem does it? Patch would have to be smart
(token, not line-based) too.
