That's right.  Like many of a certain age, I learned C from K&R, and
adopted Ritchie's style.  

I'm reminded of Bjarne Stroustrup's complaint about the C++
standardization process.  He would ask those assembled to offer
suggestions for how C++ could be made easier to use and more
approachable for the novice.  That question was always met with
silence.  If you want a lively discussion, he said, ask where the curly
braces belong.
