I believe some translators need these location infomation to find the
context. In order to squelch noise, users can:

1. Define a new diff driver, such as:

    $ git config --global diff.podiff.textconv "sed -e '/^#/ d'"

2. Add two lines in .git/info/attributes to use this driver for po/pot files:

    *.po diff=podiff
    *.pot diff=podiff
