I think it would be fine if there was an option to force such a behaviour, but
I think the default should be not to do that. diffoscope should show (all)
differences, not hide some, to make some others more visibe… at least not by
IOW: if your "container" (the filesystem) is underministic, diffoscope should
not try to hide this (by default).
