It is very easy to miss misidentification of scissors line; as a
dangerous, potentially information losing option, I do not think it
should be on by default.

Another reason (and this is the original one) why it is not enabled
is to discourage the contributors from overusing scissors -- >8 --
line.  If you always have to write too much stuff before the proper
explanation of your patch, so that the integrator has to use -c
option all the time, you are explaining your patches wrong.
