Except that there are *two* Subversion formats: space before function parens and
no space before function parens (depends on who initially created the file).
This has become something of a religious discussion (here and elsewhere) and an
albatross (IMHO) that we should just eliminate. Otherwise, Subversion follows
the GNU coding standards, so any number of source formatting tools should
support it out of the box.

It would actually be interesting to see how many of the files would be unchanged
when run through tidy (or whatever), since the project is currently using only a
carbon-based source formatter and we know how inconsistent those can be at
times... ;-)
