Sounds much better (though see my comment about "one per line please"
for the same maintainability reasons. Otherwise you either get
out-of-order monstrosities where you basically NEED to pattern match
on it with your editor just to see if something is already in there,
or you reflow every time you add something in the middle, causing
totally unreadable diffs.
