Please do.

I guess it depends on whether a person is more used to unix "filtering"
term or the person wants to emphasize the "design pattern" of the code
(as mentioned by Maxim Egorushkin on about 6/14).

OK. I concede it's bizarre, but I really didn't think it would impede
understanding. I've just been using it for years and it has some
distinct advantages (IMHO) over the Boost guidelines. However, I been
thinking about writing a program to just move the ";"'s to the end
of line using maybe spirit or wave. I was also thinking about using
a filter or decorator to do that :) Now I have more of a reason
to do that.
