I do think this would be helpful text to add.

Further (with exceptions, of course), automagic tools provide a much 
more consistent and at least acceptable-by-all metric for how code 
should look.  (And I would argue that how code looks via the squint-test 
is very *much* pertinent for longer term gathering of new developers.)
