However, there is one special case, namely functions: they have the
opening brace at the beginning of the next line, thus:

         int function(int x)
                 body of function

Heretic people all over the world have claimed that this inconsistency
is ...  well ...  inconsistent, but all right-thinking people know that
(a) K&R are **right** and (b) K&R are right.  Besides, functions are
special anyway (you can't nest them in C).
