Well, here's an argument for adding a new column (instead of a new
line): I think it's much more readable to have exactly one line per
path. Right now, we only violate that rule when there's a replacement:

D foo.c
A foo.c

...and there's an open issue for that anyway, claiming that it should
print 'R' instead.
