Or maybe it wont work like that...
(After some talk with examples I am convinced...)
What I like there is the "recommended" in it. I assume that means: If a line 
or two do not conform, well, shit happens.

In case you do not read the following, the first paragraphs may still be 
commented on independently. ;)

Something on my personal "coding style" <warning, flamewar ahead>:
I do not do any alignment, just logical indention.

if (a == b &&
    c == d)
if (a==b &&
        c == d)

Result: Looks not as pretty (but then coding is no art of beauty to me), but 
the logic is transfered ("this belongs to if()"), it is extremely easy to 
type (just one keypress, no "how many keypresses are required to align it"), 
you cannot accidentially mix spaces and tabs (since there is only one, not 
two types per line) and some editors automatically replace x-spaces with a 
tab when pasting (particularly useful when taking code from other locations, 
and honestly I do not even know how to stop Kate from doing it, and no, no 
vim for me...).

Just in case you see it, now you know who is to blame for it. ;)
(And maybe it sounds logical enough to make everyone a believer, who knows. 
But then it still depends whether you prefer something for the eye or not...)

Reason I talked about it: The 3 negative points I mentioned. I'd rather prefer 
spaces only than mixed, it is just easier. (I even know how to setup Kate for 
that. ;) )
