People are rather allergic to all-or-nothing proposals. And things that get 
pushed forwards without a real general consens.
I guess nobody is allergic to consistency in style for a given code block, 
it's just for the kind and scope of the style.

You are lucky then, I can tell you. :)

They might care because they are open to contribute there, have a look at some 
parts, and even have modules in the works which are a candidate for inclusion 
there. :) And so they might care for entry barriers, and this includes such 
representatives nitpicks as where-braces.
Also, please for KDE being a community project normalize contribution a little 
by time to spend, not everybody is lucky to earn his money by this and can go 

Understandable motivation?
