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.
