Agreed.  I'm also these days not a big fan of Bro's current style, but
like to keep it uniform.  The students I work with like it even less :-),
and in fact an item on our wish-list is to find a good pretty-printer so
we can automate things to ensure consistency.  (This will also be an
opportunity to change the style somewhat.)
