NAK, because I'm sick and tired of the pompous commit messages. I'm fine
with adding those spaces. However, I _do_ have a lot against the commit
messages like that. "Required"? By whom? Holy "Coding
style issue" - completely uninformative; there all kinds of those.

FWIW, my prefernce would be something along the lines of "whitespace
tidy-up in <function or file name>". At least that says what happens
in commit and where is it happening...
