Whether it's fixable or not, I'm going to vote against any change that
will result in any significant number of whitespace changes, because the
pain that will create for back-patching will far outweigh any minor
visual improvements. I'm still carrying the scars from dealing with
the ill-considered change in comment wrapping rules back around 8.1.
That caused me significant hassle on a regular basis for *years*.
