Provided it's what he's used to.  If he's a C programmer, it's not.
If he's competent, it won't make a lot of difference, but it will be one
more unnecessary annoyance when he's trying to understand your code.
Is your objective reforming the world, or making your code more readable?
Note that the two are incompatible in the short term, and possibly in the
long term if your reform attempt fails (which I suspect it will).
