    I genuinely think that it's the other way around: if what I say
    above is true then *you* have the superior vision for coding.

    Geometric properties of code are a distraction really, they
    don't matter to the end result.

    So in reality keeping comments balanced helps *my* disability:
    my inability to ignore functionally irrelevant patterns of
    characters...

    So I am asking *you* to do me a favor: please understand my
    perspective and insert a bit more whitespace to keep code
    readable for people like me.

    ( The wider question is, what is the contribution weighted
    proportion of the two groups of kernel developers and what is
    the disutility and utility of the two variants. It's a
    difficult balancing task and there's no perfect solution. )

    Thanks,

    Ingo
