Well, does not PEP8 state, "A Foolish Consistency is the Hobgoblin
of Little Minds" ?
Your parody is witty, and not without serious commentary; not
withstanding good remarks overall toward less ambiguous forced style
mongering... not to mention the ill-fated readability quest !
That's why I like C !
The compiler should ignore *all* white space and let the coder use
what-ever-the-heck style she wants to ... if you can't read it, what
does she care? ... its all math anyway... only the machine needs to
read it... ;-)
Back in the day, I could tell who wrote an anonymous piece of
hacking based on the encoding style... no kidding here... and now
folks want to force the personality out of our code... NO I say, NO !
... just saying, probably don't really mean it.
FSF ...free as in freedom/
