I love small patches doing just one thing! Rolling several unrelated
changes to one diff just makes it harder to see what each logical
change actually is, and how it's implemented.
There's problem with tickets with many patches, though. If patches
get committed one at a time, tracking them can get quite confusing.
Some random notes.
I think 001 goes to wrong direction. Entering and leaving editor mode
should be clearly marked. Current implementation is not ideal, but
better than nothing.
0012 - We fix formatting only when we touch code in question. Less
noise in 'svn diff' that way.
