For the futue, such cleanups should be done on separate
whitespace-only commits if desired, so that the diffs are easier to
read online.  But don't worry about this one, it's easy enough to look
at the diff locally.

Yes, that's OK, because a pull request still  allows for review in the
commit itself.  Github makes that process very easy (as long as the
developers respond :)



ps - For the list, Jonathan is here at Scipy so we'll go over this
