As Alan observed in a comment on the issue, the blank lines are there
for a reason: So that it’s easier to debug problems in the editable
source code, which is what matters, as opposed to the generated source.

Is it worth reducing maintainability in order to make these generated
files prettier for those who might read them in IDEs?  I agree that the
number of people inconvenienced will be small, but they’re the ones
doing the actual work.  I’d prefer to leave the blank lines as-is.
