As I read this reference, such handling of completely empty lines is
done only in interactive mode, ie. when python is attached to a terminal...
Git is about storing python scripts, and not "interactive input"; therefore,
this seems to be a non-issue.

I just checked it. The following, with a completely empty line 3, is working
as expected, and not looping on an empty statement:
a = ['cat', 'window', 'defenestrate']
for x in a:

  print x, len(x)
