Based on comments made by various Subversion committers, I don't think
they would like that very much :) Gratuitous formatting changes are
frowned upon.

e.g. just because the Subversion style guidelines say there should be no
tabs in the source code, doesn't mean you should submit a patch
converting all tabs to spaces in the whole source tree.
