Me neither, but it sure would be nice to be able to tell git "this is
not a functional change" (just think of the yearly copyright notice

git has no way of verifying that it's a non-functional change, of
course, so it would just be a hint to the UI.  That could then be used
by nefarious people to sneak in functional changes but mark them as

So it's probably not a workable idea.
