Yes, git is nice :-)

If you wanted the diffs to be more usable (and I'm not saying
that you *should* - this is just an *if*), then you'd want to
structure the commits such that each commit only touched one
application.  As an example:

  Bring <appname> up to snuff for -current

    * fixup includes
    * fixup build for gcc4

Is it a lot more work to do that?  Probably.  Is it worth it
for just your use?  Probably not.  Would *I* do it anyway?
Yes.  The rest is up to you.  :-)
