This "suppressed" line is for limiting length of diffs. We have some 
emails that are so huge that our mailman configuration holds them for 
moderation.  Instead of making the mailman limit larger and larger, I 
extended the post-receive-email script to limit it based on the git 
config "hooks.emailmaxlines" setting. For testing (above) I set to 3. 
Now it is set to 1666 lines.  I think anything longer than that is 
probably not useful to be read entirely in an email.
