I'd put this a bit more strongly.

This topic has come up before, elsewhere BTW.

If the re-format gets *anything* wrong you can break code.

So the sequence should be:

  * reformat
  * build
  * run all tests
  * cvs checkin

Assuming that the tests are complete...

It is at least doubtful that you want this to be an
automatic process.
