The amount of time spent on this policy with no valid argument that I can see
is awesome.  Just imagine how many bugs we didn't implement because we spent
time debating where we put the braces in two perfectly reasonable and clean
cases instead of writing more code.  Now we even write policing tools for it! 
Extra awesome.  I propose that the next step is we optimize gcc to only accept
code according to the webkit coding style.  Surely the parser will be faster,
resulting in faster compile times of WebKit which in the end make this all
worthwhile. A+

Now back to getting something real done.
