Sorry about that. I was too confident that these changes were harmless, my 

I'll look into this, and - if you want - post an updated patch for review.

I'm pretty sure all the formatting changes respect the "mono style", but 
feel free to correct me.

I know we had a "discussion" on whether braces for the class/namespace 
should go on a separate line or not, and I know you thought they should go 
on the same line. However, both the mono guidelines and several committers 
on #mono confirmed that they should go on a separate line.

I don't think I want to spend an hour or two splitting up the argument name 
changes with the formatting changes, so if you prefer to keep the sources in 
the state they were before my changes then I'll just revert my local 

My formatting changes were limited to:

* changes loads of spaces to tabs
* removing loads of trailing tabs
* moving braces on class/namespace declaration to separate line (probably 
less than 2% of my changes)
