Python scripts like this would be nice to place on the Wiki. I've
got my own script that removes trailing whitespace and changes tabs
to spaces that I've been running against Boost.Threads. (I'm
surprised the starvephil stuff was missed... I must not have run it
against them.) I also run tidy against the HTML source. Further,
I've got scripts that clean up after Jam (removes the bin directories
and the VC++ .pdb files) and one that Zips the threads stuff up
(haven't needed that since Boost.Threads was accepted). I'm sure
there are other scripts that people use during Boost development that
would be useful to others and the Wiki would be a nice place for
sharing these.
