I would prefer to have a guideline that recommends 'char const' style. IMO,
the usual consistency argument gets even stronger if you consider using of
'const' with dependent names:

template<class T>
struct something
// void foo1(typename const T::type bar); // illegal
  void foo2(const typename T::type bar); // yack!
  void foo3(typename T::type const bar); // ok
