different separators for autocomments

Current default separator "-" coincides with comments about removing as well as it confuses people if it means "removed" or not:

Comment saying "I've removed some text in section" is usually written this way:

/* section */ - some text

and produces the summary like:

-> section - - some text

Comment like

/* section */ foo


-> section - foo

Now the confusion comes: does it mean "I've done/added/corrected/whatever 'foo'" or "I've removed 'foo'"?

I've changed it to the following behavior:

  1. -> section: - some text
  2. -> section: foo

which is more intuitive and descriptive
