Whoa, that's even worse -- make a choice and stick with it -- IMO.

I'm all for consistency and have often found myself redoing dozens of scripts because I changed something -- not because the change worked and the other didn't, but rather to maintain consistency throughout the project.

Granted, different reasons promote different programming styles. While what I do is to solve the problem at hand for the client, it also has to pass through my vision of code elegance. I program for myself first and solve the client's problems second. I also realize that I have the privilege of doing so because my needs are few. I probably wouldn't do well in a production oriented environment.
