1. "Blocks: Always enclose with a new line brace." wastes lines if you
want to print the sources.

2. "White space: One space after control statements and between
arguments (i.e. if ( foo ) instead of if(foo)), myFunc( foo, bar, baz
) instead of myFunc(foo,bar,baz))."

I think that is ugly. Is there a reason behind this?

3. "Line wrapping: Always use a 120-column line width for Java code
and Javadoc."

Line width of 120 is likely cause line wrapping when diffs are send
through e-mail and problems when doing side-by-side comparison. I am
not so worried about Java code, as lengthy statements are rare, but
more about Javadoc.

My personal preference is "Java conventions", but with spaces instead of tabs.

Are there any projects in Commons that already use the "Maven" style?
