Pulled, but I wonder...

what are you generating these diffstats with? Because they are pretty bogus..

The end result is correct:

> 86 files changed, 2106 insertions(+), 280 deletions(-)

but the file order in the diffstat is completely random, which makes
it very hard to compare with what I get. It also makes it hard to see
what you changed, because it's not alphabetical like it should be
(strictly speaking the git pathname ordering isnt' really
alphabetical, since the '/' sorts as the NUL character, but close

I can't see the logic to the re-ordering of the lines, so I'm
intrigued how you even generated it.
