Dump file format

I have a few workspaces on github in DUMP format.  I think it is a good idea for me to keep the format up-to-date.  While performing said update I noticed, what seems to be, an arbitrary change that causes nearly every line to change.

In the past, the dump file format placed a single space before every function body line.  That's fine.  However, for reason unknown, the DUMP format now puts two spaces before every function body line.  This seemingly arbitrary change causes git to see every line as changed.  Therefore, real changes are hard to spot.  (I know git has an ignore spaces option.  However, nevertheless, git sees and records each line as having changed.)

I suppose it doesn't matter which way it is.  It's just best if it didn't change without a good reason.
