I'm not sure we would see a flood on a merge, probably only one commit 
saying 'merged gtkbuilder branch'? The gtkbuilder commits should appear 
as they are committed, not on merge.

This may have been because I had an older version of python/docutils. 
When I regenerated the html 3 weeks ago with a recent docutils the diff 
was small.

I'm +1, assuming we have diff size limiting like we used to with SVN. I 
find it very useful to look at small changes from my mail reader without 
having to click and wait for the github diff page to load - this 
discourages me from bothering.
