I don't like point 11 at all. The scope of a variable should be obvious 
without mangling the name. Leading or trailing underscores increase 
noise in my opinion and reduce readability.

I also don't like 75 (& 81 which is more or less the same thing). The 
rationale seems weak to me and it reduces readability (in my opinion).

I will be considering invoking points 1 & 2 in these cases!

Perhaps I have bad eyesight, but I also much prefer 4 spaces of 
indentation. Maybe that is why 80 chars per line often seems to narrow!
