I think it doesn't really matter -- surely we don't want to do it just
before some important release, but other than that I don't think there
are any constraints.  The amount of pain for large patch maintainers is
unrelated to the timing.

(I sketched a way to mechanically rebase patches across a pgindent run;
I haven't had the chance to try it.)
