Adam just landed a fairly substantial patch that did nothing but  
remove whitespace from the ends of lines.  While we had a thread about  
style changes earlier, it was in the context of changes that actually  
bring code into line with style guidelines in a way that actually  
effects the visible layout of code.

I do not believe that patches such as r47808 should be considered  
valuable as the changes have no visible effect on code layout, but do  
impact our ability to effectively use tools like svn or git blame,  
however the situation is slightly ambiguous on this matter so i  
thought i should bring it up on the mailing list.

Does anyone else have thoughts on this?
