I wish that overtime we could focus more on styles and actions, such as
this, that have more practical consequences. Over time, discussions
about the cosmetic aspects of coding style tend to get very silly.
How about a proposal that new C and C++ code must be
standards-compliant? That it must compile warning free? etc. Do you have
an idea of how much work is needed to make MySQL compile with -std=c89?
