I find the style in Doc*/CodingStyle to be hard to read as well. I code
much like Richard does -- vertical whitespace is good. horizontal
whitespace is good. braces have no business on the same line as an opening
statement. The 'TAB' character should never be found within code. Little
things like that (OK, commence flames).

I agree with the 'whatever, it's hard to maintain 20-someodd years down
the road' statement, but i also think that the author of code should be
able to choose his own style; those who edit that code should conform to
that style the author chose when he wrote it.

anyways, enough of this, i have better things to do than get into another
pissing contest about coding style.
