I think it would be a good addition, but I guess it is up to the cc-mode 
developers.  There is currently no ObjC-style in cc-mode.  But ObjC is not well 
handeled by cc-mode (c-defun-name does not work at all with ObjC for example), 
so I am not optimistic.

Another question is if it should be the default for just the Emacs project or
