I've got no problems with this, one of the problems with Nikto's
codebase is that evolved over time with Sullo being the only
maintainer. This was fine when it was just him, but probably isn't
appropriate any more.
The only concerns I have with things like lint and perltidy etc is to
ensure that an appropriate test plan is ready for afterwards, just to
ensure that nowt has changed in the input and output.
Though if this means that the code ends up in the K&R indentation
style, then I reserve the right to whinge.
