What You See Is What You Like (** just use an auto-format tool )

IMHO

it would be far better, for people that have problem with other people style,

and given the enormous almost useless overpower of today's text editors

to just write an auto format plugin for their favorite editor

in order to convert (on the fly),what to them looks annoying in something pleasant to see

keeping the stored either intact or with a conventional floor shape

instead to force everybody stick with some common floor level

having so almost everybody unhappy at reading it

let's start the WYSIWYL Epoch!!

:D
