[webkit-dev] Proposal: Adopt Web Inspector coding style for all WebKit JS/CSS source code

I like the idea of adopting inspector style for JS builtins!

It might also be good to adopt it for JS tests that we write ourselves, with an escape hatch if you need to violate style to test some feature. For example, it should be a goal to follow inspector style for the JetStream harness code, and probably for all of ES6SampleBench. New JS tests in JavaScriptCore/tests/stress that we write ourselves probably should follow inspector style, because it's code that we have to read and understand and I can't think of a reason not to be consistent. Thoughts?
