I'm pretty strongly opposed to doing this.  I think git blame is
immensely valuable (so you know who to ask questions) and nuking 30%
of that ability is pretty serious.  Especially since we have so many
people working on pygi it is very nice to use git blame to find out
who to ask questions to when you don't understand how something works.

Since we have a pretty ingrained patch review process now we could
enforce style rules on all new patches.  Is there anyway we can run a
style check on a .diff file?

Or, something else that I think might be acceptable, is if we run the
auto-indent but try and preserve git blame as much as we can.  E.g.
have people run auto-indent on the code they wrote and submit patches
in pieces.

Just some 2c
