Thanks Niels, committed:

Possibly, for some definition of easier - you should try `git add -p`, it may 
surprise you. Using diff/patch increases the overall effort by a factor of 2, 
and processing subsequent changes increases complexity as the reviewer has to 
do a mental `git rebase -i`. This is only a small example, but I'm reminded of 
a great talk by Rich Hickey[1] about how easy/hard are are on different axes 
from simple/complex.
