    At least Andrew seems to prefer cleaning up in the same patch. Anyway, I
    don't think Jeff meant that you shouldn't do any cleanups, but that you
    should try to respect the existing style as much possible. There are
    things that are almost generally agreed upon, such as removal of redundant
    typecasts, redundant wrappers, and moving assignment out of if statement
    expression. Formatting and the dreaded sizeof thing, however,
    are not, so it is best to keep them as-is.
