I don't like this because "real people don't code this way" ... if your
"real customers" do code this way, this would be OK.

: "standard" ANSI style
: int foo
: (
: long bar, /* This does something */
: int baz /* This does something else */
: );

I like this. Clean, simple, plenty of space.

: "compact" ANSI style
: int foo(
: long bar, /* This does something */
: int baz); /* This does something else */

I find (now that you ask) that a lot of docs I've inherited look like
this. It's OK. If I had to "hack my own path" from scratch, I'd use your
"standard ANSI", though.
