: (Does that sentence even mean what I think it means? Somehow it sounds 
: like "there is no good reason, but avoid them anyway" instead of "avoid 
: them if you have no good reason".)

It means "Don't make white space changes because you can, make them
because you have some other reason for changing the code."  If you are
just reading something and notice a space out of whack, don't bother.
If you are debugging the code, fixing a bug, adding a feature, go
ahead and fix that too: but make two commits.
