i suggest to not restart this conversation every time the topic veers towards 
coding style. it's not my personally prefered style either, but it's a 
workable style and the decision was for consistency rather than N personal 
preferences. the benefits and detriments of this have been discussed many, many 
times on this list, in person, on irc and likely elsewhere. how it was arrived 
had has been disected numerous times.

if you'd like to relive the experience, it's all there (several times) in the 
mailing list archives.

this is not such a big issue as to warrant that amount of continued energy 
when we could be dealing with more impactful topics or otherwise enjoying 
life. we've all had our say; let's respect each other's time and energy.
