[LAU] Ardour: exporting woes

I have to say I've never worked with uncrustify, but I have dealt with code 
preprocessors in my career working with IBM mainframes, and found that while the 
auto-formatters were ugly in their own quirky way, many times the simple 
consistency sped up my learning curve when I was called to maintain some old 
undocumented code.
   If I may propose a method, which may yield a smaller diff, restricted to just 
the functional changes:

Start with the original code base, the intented target of Fons' patch.  Call 
it v0.
Apply Fons' patch to v0, yielding v1.
Run uncrustify on v0, yielding v0.1
Run uncrustify on v1, yielding v1.1
Run diff against v0.1 and v1.1

Review the resulting diff, as it should contain only the functional changes, and 
no trivial formatting changes.
