I mostly agree with you, I have to adapt to the style of my client.
As a funny side effect, we can mostly tell who made a change just by looking at the style.
Like one of my colleagues prefers qq~...~ for multi-line SQL and I always use heredocs like <<"__SQL__";

could you please share your settings? I find configuring layout settings quite tedious and frustrating, because the cross-influences make it a try and error game.
More so if perltidy is also involved and I can see my code flip-flop-ing between different settings. And also configuring perltidy is no fun...
In the end I stopped using perltidy and configured my emacs to auto-indent the surrounding expression/block with every typed semicolon.
Like that I get life formatting without needing to think (and it's much faster than shelling out to a restarted perltidy)
But of course this isn't as feature rich as perltidy, so I'd like to become "compatible" no matter which style.
