Until you run into constructs that perltidy misformats. Then your coworkers will eventually wonder, every time they fix the use of & to override a prototype and then you touch unrelated code in the same source file, why the space gets re-inserted stupidly...

Do you at least look at the differences you are introducing before you finish checking in? Probably not. Probably making merge conflicts significantly worse plenty of times as well.
