This was recently an issue here as well:

For the GTK+ port I've been following the rules on the GTK+ sections
of the wiki (which I hope to clean up soon, by the way):
http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/HackingGtk .

I think I'm in agreement that when an entire file comes from outside
WebKit it's best to use the original style. It will make future merges
to and from upstream easier. One suggestion I have is to create a way
to mark certain files as non-WebKit-style, either because they
originate from outside WebKit or because they comprise a legacy
