I am on the fence.  

The above does not redact enough (e.g. rename/copy score should be
redacted while comparing) to serve as a generic filter.

We could certainly extend it when we make code in other tests use
the helper, but then we can do the moving to test-lib-functions when
that happens, too.

Those who will be writing new tests that need to compare two diff
outputs are either (1) people who are careful and try to find
existing tests that do the same, to locate the helper we already
have to be reused in theirs, or (2) people who don't and roll their
own.  The latter camp cannot be helped either way, but the former
will run "git grep 'diff --git' t/" and find the helper whether it
is in this script or in test-lib-functions, I would think.

So, I certainly do not mind a reroll to move it to a more generic
place, but I do not think I would terribly mind if we leave it in
its current place, later to be moved by the first new caller that
wants to use it from outside this script.
