What the f?

Asking for consistent code style is NOT "bikeshedding".
Please either ignore a request for change OR encourage it.

We, this mailinglist, have no clue how much code improvements we missed
due lack of code style. So whenever a First Time Poster asks
for guidance on spaces versus tabs, be aware that F.T.P. made some
effort to look at the source code. Consider that her/his reason
was a need for modification. A modification you not yet know you want.
