Actually, I don't believe there is a prevailing opinion one way or another
for this. Some of us tend to keep them in there, in case future changes need
them. Others tend to skip the braces.

I usually like to keep them in if that following line is anything beyond the
most simple of lines. Even though there may be a single statement, if there
is a comment, then I'll always add the braces. Control flow changes, such as
SVN_ERR(), will always cause me to add braces.


I'd say that it is personal preference at this point, with a mild nod
towards the style (if obvious) that prevails in the given file.
