No, but that's why I propose to first start our Zebra group and
figure out coding standards.  It's about time we got some, no?

However, I think it would be stupid if we created a programmer's
editor and then *not* have it default to our coding standards?

Now how do we prevent that in some far away future,
people will have forgotten this and propose to deviate from
the Zebra standard?  I suggest to prefix all names in our
softwares in our to be prefixed with "ZEBRA/".  For example:
ZEBRA/LilyPond.  That will surely work!  People are curious
by nature.  This prefix which will lead them to!
We could also host our mailing lists at, it will
be impossible to miss that hint?

Rest assured, also the source of this sarcasm will be lost
in history ;-)
