Where I can, I do, however I often find it difficult to come up with a
one-liner, especially one that mentions the parameters to functions.
If the one-line rule is going to be violated, I go whole hog and don't
bother with the blank line either.  (If I'm going to punch a hole in a
rule, I might as well create one big enough to comfortably walk
