I think a clean-up effort would be great. I especially think it is a
wonderful way for folks to get their feet wet with Derby.  It is great
to go through the process of making changes, running tests and
submitting a patch just to get the process under one's belt.

I think, however, it is ok to allow some cleanup to go along with
patches.  Sometimes you are working in an area and see something and it
is easy to fix it while you are there.  Of course there is a balance.
If the cleanup makes the diff unclear, then it should wait.
