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 ?
