The patch, which touches only one file, is over 500 lines along -- but my quick scan of it suggests that many of the changes are whitespace only.  That makes it more difficult to review.

Would it be possible to re-draw the patch against blead without making any whitespace changes?

(I'm not opposed to tidying the code, but because the file being revised is not well known, I'd like to get discussion of the changes going before worrying about tidying.)

Thank you very much.
