I think it has already been explained in the other thread why it's not a 
necessity for a project as large and as old as this one, especially when 
the changes aren't solving anything. Plus, I believe you even agreed to 
it, when this was explained in that other thread.

Either way, this isn't about uniformity. Take a look at this commit for 
example (and it's just one of the many). It was done, as you admit, 
because you wanted to find a particular piece of text when you run "grep 
configureProject". There's no level of uniformity that can solve such 
random requirements, unless of course the code is auto-generated to fit 
in these requirements.

Sorry, I really don't know what that means or how that relates to what 
we are discussing.
