Almost all decent revision control programs tend to let you ignore
whitespace when doing diffs of a program. (Works fine in most languages
as whitespace don't containing any information.) So for that reason it
should still work to update the code to have better indention and get
the full usage of the revision control. (As you don't use python.)
