No, the freedesktop CVS script shows the entire patch, not
just the 'non-whitespace' changes.

No. I want to see whitespace changes because these
may well mark errors in old or new code
is rather important to see.
Where whitespace makes the code ambiguous or possible wrong, a patch
that fixes that would be fine, but automatically modifying code in
invisible ways doesn't seem to me to have any value at all.
