Wow!  Even my cat could have probably have caught this with his extremely short 
attention span, unless there's a mouse cursor in there.

The only benefit I see for GNU-style is fewer text lines in a file, while significantly degrading 
easy readability.

Think the easiest to read (or learn by) is the C Programming BSD/Allman style, 
with K&R style closely following.

For kicks, here's my (old) augemented BSD/Allman style incantation:
alias indent="indent -bad -bap -nbbo -bl -bli0 -c33 -cbi4 -cd33 -ncdw -nce -ci4 -cli4 -cp33 -d0 -i4 -ip4 -npcs -npsl -nsc -sob -ts4"
