That's also the style I use, except that I set the tabs every 4 spaces so
several indents will still show on the page.  I tried several styles
(K&R, separate lines for each brace, etc) and finally settled on this one.
I'm happy with it and find it very easy to follow.

Gad, Dave ... I might even be able to read *your* code!
