I know diff algorithms are hard, but I sure wish Git and the other differs I use recognized comma-separated lists and didn’t mark the previous line as changed just because a comma was added to allow for the next item. (Just a display change, of course it needs merging)

@uliwitness Yeah a lot of my coding standard choices (like trailing commas) have to do with eventual diffs and merges :/

@uliwitness But that is a change in the line, diff algorithms don't care about code. Thats a kind of important part
