 Probably makes no sense to do before phase 5, anyway.

+1, will not affect big CWSes like aw080

automated whitespace and tab cleanup when merging their spread git repos into a single big
one.  Such cleanup is probably a good idea (if only to follow LOs example and not let the
two code bases diverge more than necessary), but generally it of course complicates merging
of existing changesets, so a time of "starting fresh" can be a good time for such a change
(which implies that it would probably best be done after integrating the changesets from existing
CWS in phase 6).

-1, will be a nightmare for resynching aw080 during continued 
development. Please let's wait with something like this which does not 
really change the code until no really big cws is under way.
