I guess people have settled on whatever coding style suits them best in 
files they wrote. Different authors-> different styles. That can be 
annoying when the style switches in the middle of a file.

I don't really have a strong preference for one style over another 
myself, so the GNU style is as good as any for me, as long as GNU indent 
can produce it from what I write. ;)

The only problem I see is that it could make it harder for people 
merging code with 'unindented' forks. Tim, what's your take on this with 
respect to JanosVM ?
