Quite frankly, it will just break the current git header standard, and 
make diffs look uglier.

Just get kompare fixed instead. If you want to use it with git, you would 
really want it to know about all the other git diff extensions too anyway, 
and right now it's _buggy_ for requiring a tab where none needs to be.

If "patch" doesn't want the tab, then dammit, neither should kompare.
