AFAIK, the reasons not to do cosmetic whitespace changes is that they
make history harder to read, and merging harder.

However, any reasonably modern VCS will have an option to ignore
whitespace changes (Git does).  And a lot of code in Emacs change very
infrequently.  At the same time, whitespace changes can in some cases
make the structure of code clearer, and thereby easier to understand.

I therefore think we could relax our project-wide policy along the lines
of what Richard and João suggest.
