[Doc-SIG] f(...) vs. f (...) inconsistency

this is a very tiny issue, but it bugged over the years:
In his Styleguide Guido wrote:
"""I **hate** whitespace in the following places: [...]
Immediately before the open parenthesis that starts the argument
list of a function call, as in spam (1). Always write this as spam(1)."""
I agree to 100% with this.
On the other hand I very often cut'n'paste between the library reference manual
pages and an open editor window. Unfortunately in the library reference
there are spaces between function names and the opening parenthesis, which
I always have to remove manually.
How come? Should the library documentation be fixed in this regard?
