Yes, the smiley came through, but what that really meant in this context

Yeah, even I have more important stuff to do, but I also have more
important stuff to do than continously paying attention to this silly
detail while editing different source files at the same time.

Others also have agreed that this is a real problem. Why is it so
important to be able to choose one's own style in this respect, when one
has to adapt in so many other ways? If it was only you who had to
maintain the code yo add, then I wouldn't care a tlot, but since I'm
active in the svn project, I will have to work on it as well. All I'm
asking for is consitency, not that people follow my preferred style.

Thanks,
