Sorry Eli, my previous assessment of the need for need for tighter
bounds was misleading.  I now think I aggree with Stefan's take on this

*  Some LSP servers do in fact serve an entirely reformated file even if
   the actual change is very small.  This is inneficient from these
   servers but there's nothing we can do afaik.

*  I forgot Eglot *is* using the modification hooks to record and
   transmit back changes that it does to files while connected to the
   LSP server (yes, even if the file was reformatted from the server
   side, LSP specifies we must send back the changes we did to it).

   The point here is that if modification hook sees the whole file as
   changed, Eglot is just as inneficient as the server.

Thanks very much for the optimization efforts, I'll try to do some
benchmarks once they are in master (they aren't yet right?)
