Instead of altering some validation software to conform to user behavior
perhaps you should alter your process to mitigate differences in user
behavior and the validation software. You need an automated beautifier
that conforms to JSLint's white space rules. I recommend one of the two
following. The beautification algorithm in the second is an early fork
of the first and is similar but very different.
