In terms of importance, I would put maintenance and user support as more
important than coding style.

Regarding Section 14 of coding-style.rst specifically, as I mentioned the
PS3 support is over 10 years old.  I don't expect a change to the type of
any structures.  If there are type changes, then we can update the
allocation size parameters at that time.
