Please Glenn, stop this nonsense!  Fixing those cosmetic issues is
a waste of time.  We should focus on fixing actual bugs.  Could someone
please help Eric collect a list of the various bug-fixes that should be
back-ported to older revisions?  If you could find to which revision it
should apply it's better, but if not, I'm confident Eric will find
a neat heuristic to add to his reposurgeon to automatically find the
right revision.
