Maybe you could help me understand the use case for this. I am personally
opposed to adding unnecessary complexity and configuration to software, so if
there's not a strong use case for it, that constitutes a strong argument
against it.

I am also against the changes that have been made to JSMin.php recently which
remove all white-space except for new lines (horizontal only, as you are
calling it here).

My argument is that there should be 2 modes, debug off and debug on.

* Debug off should be as high performance as possible (stripping every
non-critical character, combining when appropriate, gzip compressed, etc.)
* Debug on should be as easy for developers as possible (keeping line and
character offsets accurate, never combining, etc.)

Anything between these two extremes will neither server production nor
development well enough to have any value.
