 From the old thread we lazily decided that we should adopt the Google 
style guide which is quite close to the 5.x code as it stands now.  I 
didn't look close enough on the original commit to notice that this was 
not exactly what was done but having been in the code over the past few 
days it has become apparent it didn't go as far as I thought it was 
going to.  It is a bit irritating trying to bring over code from 5.x as 
the formatting never quite matches and breaks the checkstyle rules.

The Google style formatting rules are here: all in nice little files that can 
be imported into the IDE of your choice.

For checkstyle configuration to use the Google style that is covered in 
the CheckStyle project here:

Previous thread on this is here for reference:
