I see a couple benefits to choosing one and being consistent:
consistency makes code more readable (the main motivation for a style
guide) and works well with automated tools (eg would be nice if
checkstyle didn't generate huge diffs). Would also be nice to follow
the Sun convention since that's what Hadoop claims it does.
