So I've been doing C programming since the early 80's and leading
people doing that for at least 20 years, huh, more like 25 years.
As much as I wish people did what you suggest, they don't. And I
mean really good people, top 1%.
So I like the type_name style.
As with many things, I may like it but I don't always get it.
