By 0.001% I suppose. We seem to like "easy global fixes" currently, but let's not forget
that a KDE4 desktop doesn't even have a background right now...

I don't think it is a good idea to make untested changes to the code at the very very last minute. Imagine if there's a bug in the script...
And generally, we don't want tarballs to be different from the code in subversion (patches wouldn't apply, etc.)

Better normalize in subversion, right now, and keep that script around to run it again in a few months.
