I was a little bit confused at that time. Yes, it's more of a bikeshed
decision, IMHO it makes it less difficult to read (you didn't have to
search for the type).

This depends on the type of change someone makes. If you didn't change
the typedef of "AuthenticationConnection" but the type of "auth", you
normaly have to go through the code and ensure every invariant is still
valid (I classify this as a major code change, but this is a bikeshed
argument too).
