First of all, I should note this: As long as there is a way to configure
the two most popular editors (vi and Emacs) to adhere to this standard
of yours, the only thing that matters is to avoid like hell all
non-standard styles.  Consistently keeping the standard is more
important than the rules of the standard itself.

Some people hate the resulting style, other love it... but there is a
coding standards' guideline on your FreeBSD installation waiting to be
read by you:

        man 9 style
