in reply to (OT) Editor-neutral code formatting

"Curly braces should be aligned vertically over themselves on the same scope, rather than trailing off the end of a line."
Actually, as a disciple of the One True EditorTM, I have a very editor specific reason for prefering them at the end of the line. If I move onto a closing brace, the opening brace flashes. If the opening brace is not on the screen, emacs shows the line that the brace is on in the status area. "for (;;) {" is useful, "{" tells me nothing.
Besides emacs indents for me, and will tell me if things are wrong by not indenting correctly. It's a wonderful feedback loop (along with color highlighting, try missing a quote and watching everything look like a string, easy to spot and fix).

Entropy is not what is used to be.
