There is a difference between terminator and separator semantics.

LF is a line terminator; it is attached to the end of each line, it
does not come between each pair of adjacent lines. Hence a text file
ends with a LF.

A blank line that separates each C function in our sources is a
separator.  That is why a patch that does

        @@ -99,3 +99,8 @@ int false(void)
                return 0;
        +int true(void)
        +       return 1;

does not add a trailing blank line at the end.

And I am saying that the blank lines in "status" output should be
separators, not terminators of sections.
