As far as I can tell, there is sadly no clear structure on the coding
style to use.

I don't think that the maintainer 'Simon kelley' is opposed to a
standardisation of the code.

Personally, I think that would be a good idea to document and implement
this but I'll let Simon decide on how to proceed.

Note that Simon is currently away.
