 I wasn't restarting anything. It was just to tell Allen about why some people 
dislike it, as it seemed to me he didn't know, and the last question was 
merely a rhetorical one. I've already chosen to handle the coding style the 
same way it was created, that is by ignoring what others say (which, as you 
say, is apparently no big issue).
