There are spaces before these commas, so they don't conform to coding style 
now. Newlines are whitespace, so even if you flushed the commas to column 1, 
there would still be spaces. That's also why lines can end in commas: you 
can't insert a line break there.

As for binary operators, since we usually write "a OP b", either of those 
spaces could be a new line. It's just that our style says we should make the 
first one contain the line break, not the second.
