Personally, I'd rather us to pick one style and use it everywhere. I'd
rather not have to try and figure out which way a file is supposed to
be. I've seen files where it's not consistent because of this in the
past. I realize that some people like the space and some don't. But
IMHO some files being one way and others the other is worse than some
people having to live with a style they don't care for...
