Is this style of declarations common?

char
        *bbit, 
        *abbit,
        *state, 
        *lc, 
        pathname[200], 
        *pp, 
        *name, 
        sflag, 
        nflag, 
        yflag, 
;

unsigned
        dsize,
        fmin,
        fmax
;

I've not seen that before, if it's fairly unique then we might be able to
figure out who wrote this stuff (or did I miss that and we know already?)
