You can't impose the code style rules on others, for their projects. 
There are different valid options on where the place brackets, how to

However, code should be readable in any case. Jörg, can you be more

Philippe, would you be willing to re-license under MIT or the MPL?

True. "It works" is a necessary requirement, but not a sufficient one.
