Yes! Please! I know it makes history / blame a bit harder but not really a 
problem. In KDE we had coding style changes that changed nearly every line but 
I can still work with git to figure out the history. We should do this in all 
gnupg repos imo, maybe combined with an astyle run.

I find it very annoying in GpgOL (tons of whitespace errors) that this was 
never done. Makes patches harder and whitespace errors are highlighted in my 
editor so I "want" to fix them automatically and its irritating to ignore 
theese highlights.
