If the "=" were nestable inside parentheses, so that
one could write declarations like this:

  (double d
   = foo (xyzzy,
          bar (plugh)));

then indeed it would be a nitpick.  But "=" is not
nestable or parenthesizable when it's part of the punctuation
for an initializer.  Indenting styles designed for the
nestable and parenthesizable infix operator "=" are not
necessarily the best when "=" is used for other purposes.
