In the Olden Days, we could easily spot code which needed auditing
simply by looking at the (lack of) coding style. But then someone
decided that the most important attribute of good code was the
nature of the whitespace within it. And they wrote a tool.
For a while, this made it really hard for us maintainers to tell
which incoming patches we should actually read! Fortunately, the
Anti-whitespace crusaders have come full circle: we can now tell
newbie coders by the fact that they obey checkpatch.pl.

The Linux kernel project has some serious and ongoing structural
problems and I think it's very important that as a project we
[Debian] keep our options open.

UIO provides a framework that actually works (unlike all of the
previous research papers were trying to do), and is used in real
systems (laser welding robots!) every day, manufacturing things
that you use and rely on.
You remove UIO at the risk of pissing off those robots, the choice
is yours, I know I'm not going to do it...

80 column wraps are almost always not a sign of lack of screen real
estate, but a symptom of lack of thinking.
