Hi Ingo,

Branden's cited one source he's seen.  I had a Google last night, but
was too tired to post the results.

A _Dr Dobbs_ blog article in 2010 recommends always writing `int const'.

Google's style guide acknowledges both flavours exist, encourages the
long-standing one, but allows either, saying `be consistent with the
code around you'.

Microsoft write `int const'.

So the recommendation has been around a while, and significantly enough
for Google to have to mention it, and Microsoft's author of that one
page to use it.  :-)

I don't know if C++ has different semantics that mean choice of position
is less flexible;  I've just been talking about C.

Cheers, Ralph.
