After testing the patch as a user, I would like 3 user-visible changes.

1. Only display a blank line when there are no context lines.

2. Replace the 'lines' option with a 'maxlines' option.  There is no need to worry about, or explain to users (see 3.) the possible complications of reusing 'lines' with a different meaning.

3. Add a 'maxlines' entry to the General tab help page.  I will work on this either first or second.

I will post other thoughts on the master issue, #33610.
