Any reason? As was suggested, if you could have a "user's formatting 
policy" and a "project formatting policy" then users could see code in a 
way that they like, while the actual stored code would be consistent 
across commits.

Most people get around the issue by decreeing a specific format, but the 
two re-formats would give you an equivalent of saving an abstract code 
tree so that formatting preferences don't matter.
