How many patches is not to fix bugs, it is worse then some strayed 
whitespace but it is due to reality.
The best is, of course, if neither happened but the next best thing is 
to fix it. And if it can be automated, even better (imho).

I like to discuss but I am not sure what the result would be. Force 
people to use the editors of our choice?
As long people uses valid e-mail-clients when sending patches (or they 
use the script "sendpatchset"), I'm think we have to be satisfied.
But if you have any ideas, I'm listening.
