Thanks; this is useful, of course.

Since modification of these files is not allowed by the consumer, may I ask
for three kinds of whitespace modifications?

  - Replacing tabs with spaces. Tab width is not universally 8; it is 4 or 2
    in many Windows editors, and is 4 by default in Eclipse, even under Linux.
    This is how the COPYINGv3 file looks like in Eclipse on Linux. (Screenshot
    While hackers know how to configure their editor to a tab width of 8,
    license files are often also looked at by non-hackers.

  - Removing trailing spaces (COPYINGv3 lines 79, 512, and COPYING.LESSERv3
    lines 13, 114). I'm sure Jim will vote for this too :-)

  - Centering the title lines equally. Here is the current middle column of
    the title lines:

         file                line     middle column (0-based)

        COPYINGv3             1            33
                              2            34.5
                              8            32
                             71            33
                            621            34.5
                            623            34.5

        COPYING.LESSERv3      1            35.5
                              2            34.5
