What steps would I use in SmartSVN on Mac to do this?  I believe I'd have to
get the rev50 copied somewhere, run the formatting tool on it, and run diff

When we did serious reformatting during the port from AS2 to AS3, it was a
real pain when we needed to diff across the reformatting rev.

That said, I'm willing to live with it if everyone else really wants to have
a full reformatting pass.  I just don't want the desire for consistency to
impede our ability to make progress in the actual code.

I've never been a fan of highly detailed coding conventions.  For example, I
could care less if you use tab or space.  Any modern editor can configure
its tab width.  I do care that a tab is four spaces though and want you to
set your editor up that way.
