How To Ignore Whitespace in GitHub Unified Diff

General, GitHub
I just ran across this little gem and wanted to throw it out there for anyone else who uses GitHub. If you're ever viewing a unified diff like the kind that shows up at the bottom of a commit list, you might find it annoying if there were a bunch of whitespace changes (like tabs and such) that are cluttering the diff.

Getting Inherited CFC MetaData

ColdBox, ColdFusion, WireBox
ColdFusion's getMetaData function is a very handy way to introspect the functions, properties, and annotations of a component in an easy-to-digest format of arrays and structs. ColdFusion even nests structs to represent the metadata of the classes your component extends as well. Recently, for an enhancement I was building for WireBox, the DI/AOP framework inside ColdBox, I wanted to be able to condense all the metadata down for the component in question as well as all the components it inherits from to a single list of functions, properties, and annotations. After a short bit of Googling, I didn't find any code that did that so I decided it was a perfect opportunity to write a function that did just that.
