Diff and diff3 look for changes across entire lines of text -- i.e. the
separator is the newline.  Judicious use of blank lines, or other syntax
elements that won't normally change (eg. comments!) will help separate
related units by enough static lines that diff and diff3 won't blurr
them into one "change".
