Yeah, I get this too. Very often I'll have my editor set to do certain
clean up upon opening a file. It's not a big deal if you don't save
it, but if you need to make a local edit, it can add a bit of noise to
the diff.

I think this is a great approach. That same policy could also be part
of ongoing edits from that point. Perhaps it could even be part of the
FreeSWITCH source code style guide (if there is one). We could also
add the settings for emacs, vim and others to the wiki that match the
official recommendations.
