I just checked in a whitespace normalization change that was way too
big.  Should this task be automated?

Assuming the answer is yes, these are the questions should be answered:
 1) Which branches should this occur on:  trunk, 2.5 (last release), 3k
 2) Should there be a special user for these checkins
 3) How often should this be done
 4) Are there any other tasks that can be automated

My preferences are:
 1) all active branches (ie, trunk and currently 2.5 and p3yk)
 2) Yes, there should be a special user
 3) Once per week
 4) Not that I know of

The way to fix the files is to run:  python ./Tools/scripts/reindent.py -r Lib
At least that's what I did.  Hopefully I didn't screw anything up. :-)
