Nope -- in the Emacs tree, we're all about not making needless stylistic
changes, really.  That's why we don't make white space changes, and we
don't change one-form `if' statements into `when' across the board.

We just live with it, and write the new code using whatever standard
we've settled on.

I'm not sure I understand what you're asking -- we never change the
formatting of anything (unless we rewrite the code), so nothing changes.
