I suggest that we stop arguing about coding styles by defining one through a tool (aka clang-format and one format file for all of Qt). I know that one will never be perfect for all cases (and that you can always find corner cases where manual formatting might be slightly better), but consistency and finally stopping to argue about coding style esp. in code reviews (by automating things) is more important.
