I think introducing a config var to disable K&R would be great
(especially since IIUC it is a source of trouble, including peformance
I'm thinking more of a buffer local toggle. There're going to be times
when some hacker suddenly comes across a file with K&R function decls and
will want to be able to toggle it effortlessly.
I don't see any need for a key-binding to toggle it, tho.
Maybe, maybe not. But it wouldn't do any harm. (There are 11 spare C-c
C-<letter> bindings still unused in CC Mode.)
And I'd rather keep it ON by default for 24.1.
That's fine. But I was more thinking of it as a new feature than a bug
fix, and thus for CC Mode 5.33 / Emacs 25. I've no particularly strong
feelings as to the default; I think it should be OFF eventually, but
leaving it ON to begin with seems sensible.
