Those spaces were actually left out purposely: The file in question (typhoon.c)
is missing those spaces between the statements (if, for, while) and the
following opening bracket pretty much always (except 2-3 times) and we figured
that it might be better to keep the coding style consistent since this might
aswell have been intended by the original author.

But of course we can provide you with a patchset including those spaces.
