I agree with the principle, but in practice, I have not run into this
kinds of bugs for a couple of years, partly because Emacs takes care of
this kind of problems. 

But the extra wasted space does look terrible, and goes against the
goals of the Linus style of `If your function does not feet in your
screen, you probably need to split it up'.

I like the K&R style of clear, concise code, and let the tools do the
work for you ;-)
