It's really not much of an albatross. The *only* modules that don't
follow the GNU format exactly are the network implementations:
libsvn_ra_dav/mod_dav_svn, and libsvn_ra_svn/svnserve. And the only
real difference is that those network modules don't use space-before-
paren. Our "truce" was to keep the coding style consistent within
whatever module you're working. No big deal, really.
