Not that that means much by itself. For exmaple, I find KNF much
horrider than anything GNU has done (wrt whitespace, at least).
No individual's aesthetics do (or, IMO, should) rule here.

Yes; it is more important that a standard be followed than which
standard it is. Ugly as I find KNF, I'd rather have, for Project
purposes, uniform KNF than the mishmash of almost as many different
styles as there are developers that would result if we hadn't picked a
single style to stick with.
