because leading space has a meaning, but those differences
will not be in the patch file.

of course such a patch should really be committed upstream
so maybe there is no imminent need for fixing this - but
I think if a patch is applied or created involving .py
files, a big warning should be shown to the user.

That is so since this commit:

    Ignore whitespaces when creating and applying git patches.
        This has often be the cause for bad patches in emerge 
        were not applied. I also personaly doubt that it is 
        to make style changes (for whitespace) in emerge patches.
