Good point. With 4 space indentation the if's body ends up at the same 
horizontal position as the multi line conditional.
I think that's basically the only reason I prefer braces in their own lines 
for my own coding style.

I don't like this one either. It will be the only block that is not indented 
and if you have blocks in the cases you end up with more than closing brace 
on the same column
switch (foo) {

case 0: {
