Well, the original author of a significant piece... Right now, we have been 
going through lots of the code and reauthoring it in KDevelop default style.

And major pieces should be in the same style, not differing from file to file.

It is working out.  Just use KDevelop default style, but lets not worry about 
more formal stuff since we seem to be doing well right now.  The source is 
becoming more and more readable.
