CVS history is more important than misaligned lines. Sorry, no
Anytime you have CVS IDs in the 200-500 range, unless there is an
absolutely overwhelming reason to change things, it's already too
late, no matter how brain-damaged the original indentation was. IMHO.
If this doesn't convince, then please think about the >80 PRs that
affect these files, whose patches will suddenly cease to apply cleanly.
(Almost all of them apply against bsd.port.mk, which is the most
problematic in terms of the indentation; it is also the one with the
highest CVS ID).
This is not to mention all the local PRs that people have against
bsd.port.mk. (I have heard in the past that some people don't submit
some local PRs against the framework because the queue is so long. I,
myself, have no firm data on this).
Disclaimer: yes, I am one such person, but my changes are fairly
modular -- it is others that I would expect to have worse problems.
