Hey All,

Thanks for all the feedback.  This is my first attempt at a patch so I thank you all
for helping me through it.  I have a question about the strict option on
I thought that the stict option was not necessarily part of the coding standards but
more of a nice to have.  Should I be always using the strict option?

On this particular patch if I were to align to the open parenthesis it would push the
comment "/* trigger DELAY unit#3 */" off to the next line which I thought we be less
clear.  If --strict is optional then I would argue to leave it the way it is, but again
this is my first time and I am learning.

If I were to align to the parenthesis should I just move the comment to the next line
or possibly delete the comment altogether?  The code is clear and the comment might not
be necessary but I didn't want to remove anything the original author wrote.
