discussions are religious, and I'd rather just share a common standard.

beginning of lines. There is no way to ignore if its at the end or 
beginning of the line.

Most autoformaters (Eclipse in my case) format according the checkstyle 
spec such that all operators fall at the beginnings (I don't see a way 
to change this in Eclipse at least). I suspect it covers more IDE cases 
to have this set property removed so it defaults to the beginning of the
