Yeah, that's my impression.  I'm certainly a fan of consistency, so if
anyone else would find it useful, I'm willing to volunteer to help
maintain some documentation on standard coding conventions for Emacs

I'm happy to start reporting bugs about inconsistent behaviors so we
can discuss how to resolve them or whether they're better left as they

not so much others. ;))
