I didn't say this is a no-go but we need to discuss this one and fix our
coding guidelines if we agree on pushing this changeset. There already
is some inconsistency with aurblup using spaces for indentation so this
certainly is an area we need to work on.

Dude, I hope you don't take our feedback personal. I'm just trying to
keep inconsistent and inconvenient stuff out of the code base as it
already is way too patchy. Your patches are highly appreciated and I'll
definitely push some of them if you clean them up.
