Thanks :-).

By the way, I normally would have just applied your patch anyway (no
need to delay it while telling you about the hoops to jump through
next time). But in this case, there was some recent discussion about
the wording of that option, so I wanted people to have a chance to
think about this proposed new wording anyway.

(The most recent change to it was r11218, but that just removed the
"GNU" qualifier from diff, which makes sense, as -x applies to any
external diff command.)

I wonder if it might simply be time to get more verbose, and have a
line break in the description, as we do with the --native-eol option.
