* Instead of using trailing "# correct" comment on each of the
one-liners, group the good ones and the bad ones into two groups
and give (incorrect)/(correct) header like the other patches as
suggested. How does this look?
The only reason I originally did these differently is because
these are two independent examples, and I thought it would make
the difference stand out better to the readers if we showed
good/bad pairs of "cat" and "echo" that way. But as long as we
are not going to add more examples here, I think the result is
not too bad.
