The line count is important if you want to parse a stream of log
messages, and message separators occuring in log messages aren't escaped
in some way. CVS has this problem and that's the reason for presenting
the line count in Subversion, I guess. At least I immediately thought
"ah, good idea" when I saw these line numbers for the first time. 8-)
