There was a conscious decision for merged adds to be added with history.
There was a conscious decision for add-with-history files to only display
diffs against the previous history location. Those two things together form
the behavior we have today.
However, I'm not sure whether there was ever a conscious decision that
involved both of these situations at once, if you know what I mean.
