The easiest way to find out is to merge HEAD^ of this patch series
(i.e. "diff: buffer output in emit_line_0") with whatever we suspect can
cause breakage for the goal of channeling everything though emit_line_*
functions. Looking at that series, I think I'll have to redo
this (maybe even including sb/diff-cleanup, to have it all in one series)
to capture all output there.

I suspected a breakage, but as the patch series grew larger and larger,
I first wanted to get into a working state before paying attention to solving
conflicts as resolving conflicts is easier when I know where this series is
