I noticed that one of the raft patches flagged (which I hadn't noticed
when I tested the original change - sorry) for this, and this patch
clears that up.

I'm actually seeing some of 'line lacks whitespace around operator'
being flagged (for instance, '--' looks to cause a flag, and probably
should get some kind of treatment in the future).
