The pros that have been cited include code review and diffs for leading commas.  One nice thing about books is that they are fairly static, so the pro doesn’t really apply ;-)

I thought it looked strange at first, and was weird to use for about a day.  But when the code changes, it comes in pretty handy.  Now I’ve found I like the approach.
