This patch shows a third way, still quite authoritarian but sort of
opt-out-able and entirely local. It makes it harder to *create*
patches that break the rules, not to submit them.

It will also (I think) make it harder to `git am` a patch series that
contains whitespace errors, and will possibly annoy people who make a
lot of private WIP patches.
