It might be easier to read for you personally, but it is harder for
people that have never written/read any K&R code. Some emacs
contributors have started programming after C was standardized, so they
never had a chance to know any different (and its quite possible that
some were even born after the standardization).

So yes, this preference has a price, and one that is not in emacs' best
interest to pay.
