FWIW, having labels in column 0 always looked wrong to me.  I’m happy to change 
the style to require at least 1 space, but I’m *not* happy to have a style 
enforced that contradicts what we’ve written in the emacs style blocks at the 
bottom of all the files.

Would it be OK if we 
* Checked in this patch, but
* Weren’t picky about enforcing it yet
* Looked into an efficient way to get a suitable style update?
