Subject Re: Suggested coding convention: sort methods

The real can of worms is opened when developers start reformatting code 
with Pretty Printers or IDEs and then try to get their patches applied; 
everything is suddenly out of sync with what's in CVS.  Even 
automatically enforcing the style as it gets checked in doesn't really 
avoid that one.

I'm sure I could find some earlier, er, 'discussions' about this in the 
archives of other mailing lists for everyone's amusement ;-)

For what it's worth, I'm +1 on the general idea though.
