Standard practice in Git documentation is for each variation of an
option (such as: -p / --porcelain) to be placed on its own line in the
OPTIONS table. The -L option does not follow suit. It cuddles
"-L <start>,<end>" and "-L :<regex>", separated by a comma. This is
inconsistent and potentially confusing since the comma separating them
is typeset the same as the comma in "<start>,<end>". Fix this by placing
each variation on its own line.
