I won't change my toolchain just to see these formfeeds. Looks like I had luck so far... but now, really, how can I work on Wget's sources from now on ? I have to stop here and now...

Stop with that crap (formfeed characters) already. Exactly zero people actually need those things in source code, which is also why no modern projects use them anywhere. They're not helpful these days.

Also, the GNU code guidelines say this[1]: "Please use formfeed characters (control-L) to divide the program into pages at logical places". It does not say that they are mandatory or that you'll be run out of the village if you don't use them.

Code guidelines are supposed to *help*!
