But look at the following example:

if a:
if b:

If I accidentaly delete if b:, then some_code2 gets under the if a: which is
not intended. With braces (or other delimiters):

if(a) {
if(b) {

if I delete if(b) I get a syntax error about unmatched braces. IMO, the "right"
way to handle braces in C is always to  include them, even when they are not
technically obligatory. I code like that for a long time and it has saved me
a lot of headache.
