Shell scripts and Makefiles are the two I thought of immediately.
Maybe there are more, I don't know.  How about TeX and PS, for
example?  We have a few of those.

Basically, every major mode that has support for add-change-log-entry
and for which we have files in the repository is a candidate.

Btw, the best solution would be to have these tricks added to standard
Git installation, or maybe to GNU Diff (which I think Git uses?).  Why
should users need to reinvent the same wheel all the time?
