I can't find the email, but I could have sworn when I first started that 
I was referred to the Java coding guidelines at


If we agree this is as good as any other standard, it would be good to 
adopt it as our own coding guideline and publish this somewhere...

I do know one key standard: four-space tabs.  We seem to be fairly 
inconsistent about everything else, although that said most of the code 
is fairly readable.
