I think this can be the last word on the issue:

Right now we have a split among the most active developers (Karl likes
it, cmike likes it, brane and the Gregs dislike it, dunno about anyone
else), and consequentially, we have no rule except "be consistent within
a file, and don't change over a file once it's been created." In order
to have a rule, we would need to be much closer to consensus on the
issue. And we won't get consensus by arguing; we'll get everyone to be
Zoroastrian before we'll get everyone to agree on code style.

Obviously, if you care about this issue strongly, you should write as
much new code as possible so that you can make your preference apply to
lots of files. (That's the real reason I wrote ra_svn, of course.)
