nope, i was trying to fix the very same things mans fixed, namely reformating
the code for better readability. no tool in the world would have avoided that
colission and wasted time.
I do take it seriously when i commit something and i do fix issues that are
pointed out to me (unless its bikeshed that goes far too far like the #include)
its annoying if someone complains to me and while i start working then commits
under my fingers that very change without asking, making me waste time
