If not using astyle on calligra/2.9, then it should be better only applied at 
the end of the porting, close to 3.0 release, to not complicate forward 
porting of commits to calligra/2.9. Would you agree?
Perhaps also even only after 3.0, during 3.1, when the chances are even lower 
that stuff needs to be forward ported from 2.9.

So okay if I move that item to a section "Stuff to be done after the port"?
