No, it's not useful in that way -- I just meant that it makes better
visual presentation, because it makes it obvious that the two things
are meant to be compared (no matter how many chars they differ by).

However, I'm convinced by Greg's and others' arguments that we should
avoid newlines, and am happy to pay the price of horizontally listed
checksums, so please ignore my objection anyway.
