Your style (I wouldn't call it The New Style) is visually distracting, and
therefore harder to understand and use, longer to write and full of
syntactic noise without any whitespace. Quite frankly, how anyone could
ever say that
is easier to read/write/use than
(say when we #define GET_FIELD_DECL(x) TREE_OPERAND(x,1)), with or without
all-caps, is completely beyond me. I pretty much hope that we never see
the ugliness of the first way in GCCs code base. Even in C++ it's
possible to write non-spaghetti code.
