Hi all,

Before this explodes into a bikeshed, I tentatively agree with Stephan here,
despite me writing:


back in the days. Note that document wasnt build on what I assumed to be the
"right style"(*), but the most commonly used style in an attempt to bring more
consistency to the code base.

I dont think drive-by reformatting to be a good way to solve this though: If we 
want consistency (which is the ~only benefit of a 'cosmetic' code style), the
way to go would be to define a style for uncrustifyi(**) and then use that to make 
~all the codebase use that (after painting a lot of bikesheds).



(*)  Given free choice, I would go for 1TBS ...
(**) http://uncrustify.sourceforge.net/
