In case of emergency, you can write a few-line script to use diff -w and
patch to get the effect of a whitespace insensitive merge.  But, I agree
that automatic, en masse whitespace changes should be done all at once,
or not at all.

If you guys can settle on a policy, I can make "whitespace orthodox" an
automated test.


PS.  You need a branch about 190 files ago. :)
