Well, other programmers may have a different opinion, but I can at least tell 
you what I would prefer:
I would have no problems with coding standards that allow you to clean up 
_after_ a session, because I lose half of my good ideas while bothering with 
coding standards. Good would be some convention where you can just modify 
your code with sed(1) afterwards, that's not much overhead.
