Yeah :-) If that doesn't solve the issue either, then we could
integrate the check into regression tests: global failure if not
inspect-free (and transcription to criminal record! ;-))

But it's still very tedious to switch to the branch, check the diffs
etc. Or do you merge blindly? I'm actually tempted to do the work for
the 1.34 branch only, and postpone it on the head. The point is, as
you well know, that anything being tedious is error-prone. I'm doing
the job in little pieces, every time in the day I *feel* like doing it

Incidentally I've just found a file with *mixed* line endings. Is that
a problem or it doesn't matter? (I can't tell off-hand which one, as I
was doing a lot of modifications in one big sweep, so if that is
important I'll go and look it up)
