For readablity. 
Compiles would also be faster if we switched from 3-space indention to no 
indention at all.
The rule: system headers in <>, local header in "", which is adopted by 
basically every other project on the planet is a good one. It clearly 
separates the headers which are local from the system ones, which is 
especially useful for headers with generic names.
Ultimately though, like the 3 space indention, it's the style of the project 
you're contributing, please just follow it.
