For the Chromium WebKit API, we decided to go with the WebKit coding style
(instead of Google C++ style used by Chromium), so that it would be easier
the WebKit community to maintain .  I think that has been helpful, and I bet
probably benefit from doing the same.  This way people working in the WebKit
codebase only need to know one set of rules.

At any rate, I believe you are free to make it match another style as Evan
out, but I thought it worth sharing our positive experience w/ using WebKit
