Only if I touch the variable declaration itself, not only the function. 
Since GIMP aligns local variables, it isn't that uncommon that you touch 
variable declarations you didn't add yourself.

Run it on a file in GIMP and you'll see what commit that last touched a 
line. That is very helpful if you are uncertain why the code looks like 
it does in a particular place. If the commiter did a good, job all you 
have to do is to read the commit message for the commit that last 
touched that place, and the intentions of the original programmer should 
be clear(er).
