It would be interesting to put these lists of rules that people have
generated in a system that records votes and see what the real
community opinion of them is. Also, if it collected the list of items
you agreed with (and a converse list as well) and then compared that
to other peoples lists, you might be able to get a really good picture
of peoples various styles.

> I’ve used 4 spaces now mostly because my eyesight is poor and it simply helps me see things more clearly. It’s also so common as the default tab for editors that I prefer just going with the flow rather than always fighting other team members and/or other language standards in multi-language projects.
