I think it adds some quantifiable, incremental value for the
people coding the bugger.  =)  You are right in that it would 
have no effect on the users.  

And, I think we could do it in such a way that it didn't delay a
release.  Realistically, we'll have some time after 2.0.X (28?) 
goes beta to do some last-minute things.  AIUI, all of the other 
release showstoppers *need* to be addressed before labeling 
anything GA, so I think that we have a few weeks before having a 
GA ready at the earliest.  That should be enough time to do it.
If we are to do style changes, I'd like to do it in a way that 
doesn't harm developers trying to get a release out the door.

If we don't do it before we go GA, we're never going to do it.
And, we'll be stuck with that style until we open 2.1 for
development.  -- justin
