Drop "before this change,"; it is clear (and it is a recommended

Thanks.

As a follow-up to this patch, we may want to perform a systematic
audit of

    $ git grep -e 'printf "[^"]*\$[^"]*"'

There is one in git-difftool-helper.sh

    printf "\nViewing: '$MERGED'\n"

and mergetools/p4merge:

    printf "$empty_file"

I think

        printf "%s\n" "$files"

would be clearer.
