Maybe my wording was inappropriate. It wasn't my intention to force
anyone to use this tool nor convert whole codebase. My intention was
that if we have some piece of code, on FS for example, which brakes
heavily our coding style we may suggest the author to pass it through
'reference' formatter to save his work.
