However, as the author Henrik Bengtsson points out "these guidelines are ours and not the R-developers." Perhaps a definitive style guide published by R core that ensured consistency among new base code would be a helpful addition. I personally find the above style guide extremely useful when multiple programmers work on the same project, and would welcome a formal endorsement or revision by the R developers. (And despite Henrik's elegant guide, I too leave off the semicolons at the end of the lines.)
