To be absolutely clear, "Yes" means we will then choose a style for the
project, reformat existing code, and stick to that style for all new code,
whereas "No" does not necessarily mean that we will choose a single style for
new code. Correct? (I'm not implying there's anything good or bad about
that.) If so, here's my vote.

   [X] Yes, reformat all code to a consistent style
   [ ] No, don't reformat existing code
   [ ] Abstain

At first, I thought I'd like to vote for reformatting in the dominant style,
but not for reformatting in the other style. Then I realised that's illogical.
  I'm happy with reformatting (partly because it will drive us to improve
Subversion blame etc. to cope with it), and I'm happy with either style.
