I understand that. However, keep in mind some developers feel uncomfortable
when looking at badly formatted code and this may hurt the reviewing process.

IMHO, if you want to get feedback, try to ease developers reviewing process
by making the code as polished as possible.
Some numbers on how this is performing, comparing against current alternatives
as ubifs, jffs2, etc. might be useful.

Just a thought!

Good luck,
