this statement is so silly in so many ways, that i won't even bother
refuting it. probably the reason why nobody else answered so far ... ;)

anyway, to make an end to this bikeshedding, i'll call for a vote by the
kde e.v. membership (asking only people who are actually interested in
kdelibs development to vote):

which coding style do you prefer to be applied to "shared" sections of

1) current style
2) unmodified qt style
3) any strictly defined style
4) lubos' new relaxed style (uh, which variant?)
5) any relaxed style
6) anarchy!

this isn't going to be authoritative for obvious reasons, but it will
give a good image of what relevant people generally think of this issue,
thus hopefully making an end to this waste of time.

Hi! I'm a .signature virus! Copy me into your ~/.signature, please!
Confusion, chaos, panic - my work here is done.
