Yeah, that make sense.  I talked with Miller at the last Linux Audio  
Conference about this. He said there that he would be willing to take  
the whole file rather than a diff.  I hope that it is still the case,  
I forget whether I mentioned this again in this round of discussion.

Just reorganizing the file would create such a massive diff that I  
don't think it would be very readable.
