that's a shame but I respect your wishes, sadly this creates a new split where
NetBSD, OpenBSD & DragonFlyBSD produces output one way & FreeBSD another. Just
as a heads up, the NetBSD test case for this behaviour did not exercise this
functionality (there weren't any blank lines in the test case) but just tested
that text was indented.
This has been corrected upstream in the NetBSD ATF tests so this issue may crop
up again should your contrib/netbsd-tests but updated to incorporate the new
test cases from NetBSD.
