A better example might be a .c file, as the function name is often a
pretty useful piece of information.

Read: I think it should be part of the outer hunk header.

Also, the text "modified file" takes up an awful lot of space. Maybe we do
not really need that information?

While at it, we could strip the line numbers, as this is not intended for
machine consumption, but for human consumption instead.

Oh, okay then ;-)
