That part I figured out : ).

'added 2 lines' right?

Keeping track of which lines were removed and which added seems confusing,
but I'm sure I could get the hang of it. Worse though is that any line
number changes need to ripple downwards. So if I delete a hunk part-way
through, all the other hunks (from the same source file) would need to be
adjusted accordingly, and on large files with large changes this gets
nightmarish fast.
