For those of you who aren't sure where the heck those space-after-comma and 
the other rules are coming from, that's the K&R coding standard, which is 
the coding standard for the php4 repository.   One other rule that's really 
not followed is [3]:

[3] Be generous with whitespace and braces.  Always prefer:

     if (foo) {



     Keep one empty line between the variable decleration section and
     the statements in a block, as well as between logical statement
     groups in a block.  Maintain at least one empty line between
     two functions, preferably two.
