There are NOT so many disagreements. I bet the silent majority is fine with the current
kdelibs coding style. What do you want? That everyone who likes it posts a useless
mail like this one saying "I like it"?
I do like it, and I especially like finally having some idea what formatting to use 
when fixing bugs all over kdelibs, and I do think this thread is just losing everyone's time.
And I wish I didn't have to post in it, but if only those who "vote against" speak in the thread
then it simply fuels the arguments like the above.
And *really* we have better things to do than changing the coding style every 6 months.
