This wrapped line was introduced a while ago (4465f410, checkout-index
needs a working tree, 2007-08-04).  It was the first line to wrap, but
it was also the longest line at the time.

Now the longest line is

                { "merge-recursive-theirs", cmd_merge_recursive, RUN_SETUP | 

(94 columns), so you are right that consistency would suggest dropping
the line wrapping for checkout-index.

But I find it hard to convince myself that alone is worth the churn.
In what context did you notice this?  Is the intent to help scripts to
parse the commands[] list, or to manipulate it while preserving
formatting to avoid distractions?  Did you notice the broken line
while reading through and get distracted, or did some syntax
highlighting tool notice the oddity, or something else?

Hope that helps,
