That was the style that Roland used when the code was written: form
feeds were used inside a source file to separate major functions.

I guess it hails from a time when it wasn't that unusual to print out
your code to physical paper, on a printer, and read it that way.  Then
it would be nice to have a major function start at the top of the page.
