I think that by "$LINE", Guillaume was referring to the _contents_ of the
line, rather than the line number. So in this example, if the original
file contains ten lines containing "line1" to "line10", and R2 adds (and
R3 removes) a line at the start containing "addedline", then Guillaume's
hypothesis is that the line containing "line1" will indeed be marked as
coming from R1, since that was the only revision that added a line
containing that string. (Possibly the example was confusing because the
content of each line was a number, which could all to easily be taken for
the number of that line!)
