Some other people have already pointed you to the Mono coding styles in
/mcs/class/README.  It covers the braces.

We despise hungarian notation, please avoid it.  If somebody has used
that, we will clean it up some day (the reason being: we need the CVS
history more than changing the format, so we rather preserve CVS history
now than changing the code).

We prefer internal variable names to use:

	class MyClass {
		string my_var;
		int my_other_var;

		string MyVar {
			get { return my_var; }=20
