true, but there is no ambiguety in:

   do something if A == B

in which case extra parens make the code less readable, IMHO of course.

In any case, let's not to start a flamewar here, we just try to keep the 
coding style consistent across the project and we use () only when they are 
needed to avoid ambiguety.
