I think this is confusing and unnecessary.
Using --fix can not delete context lines from a patch.

It's simpler to add a check that $line starts /^\+/ before $fix

Maybe it'd be better to have a separate test for this to make
the output message clearer too.

Something like
	"Avoid deleting lines that create consecutive blank lines"
