Please don't.  We do not want a "style conversion" for the sole
purpose of conversion, especially when a subsystem is already
internally consistent.

Besides, the thing needs to be fairly bash specific so
the usual "Git Porcelain scripts targetted for POSIX/Bourne shells"
rules does not apply there.

Yes, it is always preferred to match the _local_ convention.
