Thanks for your feedback, but I am always generous with my spaces. I
feel it makes my code easier to read (at least for me). I do not think
they bloat the code, because to my understanding code bloat is
generated when there is unnecessary *code* in the program and
whitespace is not code! And when you tarball it, it all gets
compressed anyway...
