+1. Very sound rules of thumb; please preserve them somewhere! FWIW,
these are basically the principles we followed at Oracle; the only
additional principle was that the style guide would change as
technology changed. This usually applies to rules that forbid things
that aren't widely implemented (e.g., compilers on important platforms
that didn't support namespaces or exception).
