    I asked Nikolas to remove the modelines from his already- 
committed patch to files in platform/qt, but this was more of a  
request than a mandate. As far as I'm aware there hasn't been a true  
discussion about the appropriateness of modelines in WebKit -- I was  
just following our current convention, which is not to have  
modelines. But it's good that discussion is taking place, as this may  
make more sense for some platforms than others.
