The main things I recall Cuis doing were switching from CR to LF for it's
fileout line termination and 'lightly' ordering
classes(?)/categories/methods.  While it's not too difficult to get merge
conflicts, it's also not too difficult to work around them.  Better (i.e.
more global) ordering on fileout would probably all but eliminate the false
positive conflicts.  Though obviously that issue alone hasn't caused anyone
enough pain to make fixing it a priority (but now that I think about it,
improved diff-ability might make it worth it.)
