Well, just another thing to keep in mind, we've discussed having a commit
where we run the entire source through the formatting settings. So once we
do come to a consensus we should be able to automate the process of
formatting the code hopefully and format everything once so it can all be
uniform. I'm still for this and think its a good idea.
