Do you mean the "removal of the WS in the lines preceding the current".
In other words, do you mean "removal of the trailing WS that was once
proper indentation"? 

Or do you think that the current line, the one where point stands, should
not be indented at all in certain electric-* variable combinations and or
c-electric-* variable?  Which of those combinations?
Probably.  Maybe João should check this, once he's fully back with us.

I'm afraid I can't put a date on that. There's a bun in the oven...

An important development towards figuring out this issue is that a
significant fraction of us agrees on what the behavior should be
in what cases.  Then we should code tests that assert that behavior
possibly reusing the fixtures in electric-tests.el.

I see.  That does make sense. But, to be sure, we _dont_ what to
remove the indentation WS on the "current" line, right?
