This may have been suggested previously, I didn't check the thread 
(sorry, but I think it is important enough to say again anyway).

Because of this issue it is important *not* to format code as it goes 
into CVS. However, how about formatting code once a code freeze is in 
place for a release. In the vast majority of cases there will be no 
*major* work going on across a release, if there is then roll back on 
the required files.

All developers should update their files after a release anyway so they 
should all have the newly formatted code.

Have I missed something?
