As a general rule, if you're changing existing code, stick with the
existing formatting (i.e. no line in a path should be about
formatting, unless the patch is explicitly about that).

If introducing new code, we use the standard Java coding conventions
(with spaces instead of tabs) as the main guideline, without
specifying or policing the formatting in any more detail.
