Right, I expressed my doubts in this area at the end of the cover letter
for v1:

>>   - Should tests be added in a separate commit?  This is what I did as I

I will be glad to follow any guidance provided, I just picked one of the
two possible routes for v1.

First, let me say that the goal of minimizing the run time of a test
suite is close to my heart (it is an issue at my day job).  Yet, I
assumed that this new test would not be detrimental to test suite run
times as it takes about half a second to run t4069-diff-ignore-regex.sh
on my machine - and (I hope) its contents are in line with the "tests
are the best documentation" proverb.  That being said, I realize that
the hosts used in various test environments may have different
processing capabilities.  I tried preparing something exhaustive and
well-commented, so that it is clear what to expect from the new feature.
Yet, if you would rather have me cut some things out, I am certainly not
particularly attached to the tests from patch 3 and I will be glad to
rip them out if that is the recommendation :-)

Right, neat, though this does not (yet) test:

  - the interaction between -I and --ignore-blank-lines (this is visible
    in code coverage),

  - whether the list of hunks emitted varies for different -U<n> values,

  - diffstat with -I<regex>,

  - invalid regular expressions.

Would you like me to add these tests to your proposal or to skip them,
given that -I uses the same field for marking changes as ignored as
--ignore-blank-lines does?

Right, makes sense, I have not thought of that use case.
