True enough.  I think it is a sort of nervous tick I've picked up, which
has saved me in so many other languages that I now write code in
that order without conscious thought.  I'll fix the existing cases in
a few days, and try not to commit any new ones.

Another 'tick' I have from my days of writing elisp is that I almost
always write increments and decrements as '1+ x' and '1- y' (and
invariably have to go back and fix the decrement expressions)!
