Ok, we can choose not to. I'll modify the config and add it to the
repository sometime later tonight. Meanwhile, I really don't see why
doing "too much" is a problem. Its an automated tool, its _trivial_ to
change such things at a minute's notice. But I'll go with the
majority, I'm not anal about cleanup conventions :-)

Ok. Jalopy can get fancy and explode imports (so instead of
org.apache.forrest.* it will declare only those classes that are
actually used) or it can collapse them (use foo.* instead of
individual classes). Any preferences there or do I just leave them as
it is?

This is vague. Are you talking about assignments? expressions?
operators? brackets? space before? space after? An example would
really  help :-)

Subject to dev preferences I guess.
