Eric Kow <kowey at darcs.net> added the comment:

OK, here's an amendement taking some comments into account:
- Petr/Max that centering is important
- Isaac and Florent (in a way) that hints should not mislead
  users into thinking the UI is limited to certain way
- Petr that we could regroup the hints.
- Ganesh that we could use a more unlikely split separator
  (I'm doing it in a weak/simple way)

Perhaps if there are no strong objections, we should push this and maybe make
further refinements on that?

Thanks for all the comments!



Interactive hunk edit:
 - Edit the section marked 'AFTER'
 - Arbitrary editing is supported
 - This will only affect the patch, not your working copy
 - Hints:
   - To split added text, delete the part you want to postpone
   - To split removed text, copy back the part you want to retain
