We've tried clang-format in several GNOME projects with not great 
results. I'd recommend uncrustify instead.

Still, I'm not sure it's a good idea for WebKit. I'm sure we could make 
either tool work, but we'd have to be very lax with any configuration 
we use, or it could get pretty annoying. And the existing style checker 
works decently enough.
