you are absolutely correct: it is a matter personal preference. which is why 
the discussions will always continue if we don't realize that it's a matter of 
personal preference and just move on. it's not something we can measure as 
being absolutely better or absolutely worse.

the current style is not my personally prefered style, but i've chosen to 
accept an agreement over my personal preference for the better good of the 
project as a whole.

it's a matter of priorities.

p.s. please don't put words like "shut up" in my mouth. it's poor form.
