Although I think sticking to a specific style going forward is
reasonable (even if I'm not fond of all of the recommendations of
style(9)), I don't think refactoring the existing dwm codebase purely
for style is a good idea. When I looked at the patches, the first thing
that came to my mind is "All my dwm patches are going to break because
they can no longer be cleanly applied." Customization-by-patching is a
very popular strategy with dwm users, and I'm sure there are tons of
other people this change would also inconvenience.
