I like it, but I assumed that was off the table, since these files are
maintained outside Emacs.  :-)  If we can do janitorial changes to files
to clarify that we shouldn't do janitorial changes in them, then things
get easier to handle.

Well...  then this no longer can be automated.  I'd really like to have
a mode line thing stating the maintainability status of the file when
doing cleanups...
