K&R here, unless existing guidelines are in place... CodeIgniter
framework and ExpressionEngine wants folks to use Allman.

I use a programming lang called Objectscript at work, and it will give
an error if there is not space between the "if" and the first "("...
For example:

if(...) <-- errors out.

I have had to learn to put a space in there:

if (...)

So I don't forget, I do this for everything now... I actually kinda
like the breathing room now.

Speaking of spaces, I am not a fan of putting spaces around the argument:

if ( foo == baz ) {

I definitely prefer this:

if (foo == baz) {

More on spaces: I am so glad that most PHP folks I know use tabs for
indentation and not spaces! Oops, did I just go there? Oh no I didn't!

Good thread! Thanks for that link Tedd!
