This is a discussion for Emacs Wiki, not here.

Personally, I disagree with any automatic messing with source code contributed
to the wiki. Please leave the source code as its contributors wrote it.

Anyway, if a tool can automatically massage source code to produce input for
another tool, then the second tool can do its own automatic massaging. IOW, do
this on the fly, if you must do it, but leave the contributed source code alone.
