I agree. Now there are more people involved I think it is needed as well.

While looking out there is good, I have been following a code style
already. So perhaps we can use that as a starting point?

I do follow the Eclipse K&R style with one change, instead of tabs I use
spaces. I do know most C/C++ developers prefer the opening brace on a new
line, I even think officially K&R has this. But the Eclipse version does
place it on the same line, which is what I prefer.

Anyway, I'm open for other ideas, so let's see what others have to say.
Whatever we choose, let's make sure when we decide on something, that we
update all code and examples.
