I would really like to see everyone starting to follow the same
conventions for naming, documentation, testing, writing extension
code, etc. as much as possible.  When writing new code please use the
agreed upon standard.  No need to spend your time changing your code
now, but maybe you could start developing the habit of using the
standards.  I am sorry that we can't all agree on these standards, but
some of it will obviously just come down to personal tastes--which
means that someone will have to compromise.
