Store formatted JSON in source control

The SFDC metadata API returns some items types as JSON compressed to a single line. For example, this applies to Wave dashboards (.wdash files).

Gearset neatly expands this to a more readable when visualizing and comparing.

However, in source control Gearset stores them in their original one-line compressed format. As a result, when doing merging and conflict resolution at the source control layer, these items are impossible to handle, as *any* change (whether technically conflicting or not) results in a conflict from git's point of view.

It would therefore be great if Gearset kept the expanded format for JSON data when committing such items into source control.
