It does not scale well.
I do not think it is something bad for a project to impose
a format so it can provide consistency across its source code.

The level of tolerance for the CDT, so far been very high ... unless your code
look like some of our engineer here:

Sure, "if it ain't broken .."
But contrarely to say the AST parser, or the debugger, I do expect
the number of people contributing to the UI code to rise and consistency
in a source code bring down the stress factor and the chance of going bald.

allright then ...
