`n' is the easiest key to press, so it should perform navigation that the users will find most useful, in general.

If the behavior does not correspond to the command name, it would be better to rename the command, or change its docstring, or etc.

But I don't think `diff-hunk-next' jumping to the beginning of the first hunk when invoked at the file header, is in any way odd. After all, point wasn't inside a hunk before.

Right. The choice is whether to revert the new behavior entirely, or to
leave it in with a switch. Since we're looking at a small sample here,
it's not clear which is the right move.

Note, however, that nobody else has stepped forward to explicitly support the new behavior.

If you get around to polling Emacs users at your workplace, or a meetup, or so on, please let us know.
