Great! You're welcome.

Yes, I guess we could easily make the line-matching ignore whitespace.
Matching is currently done using a simple strcmp(), so it's fairly naive.

Please file an enhancement issue, with undefined schedule (if someone
wants to pick this up before 1.7.0, that's fine -- but it's not a
critical feature).

Ignoring whitespace would help dealing with diffs messed up by e.g. gmail.
Though I've seen gmail use some magic UTF-8 sequences for whitespace,
which is really annoying and which a naive approach like ignoring
single-byte characters like ' ', '\t', etc. may not cope with.
