    How about allowing (but not requiring) braces for single-statement

    My rationale on the subject of wrapping..  Wrapping "whenever you
    have to" but putting as many terms/element on each line, means you
    need to visually evaluate the statement/expression in two dimensions
    (make sure you've processed all the things on the line & remembered
    them, then move to the next line & repeat).  I find that makes
    interpretation of Boolean complex conditions, in particular, quite
    difficult.  Hence, I prefer to see all the terms on one line, or
    else one per line.  MHO.
