While I still think use of reverse christmas tree is misguided,
there were some disagreements about what form it really is:

Is this reverse christmas tree?

   void foo(void)
   {
   	int	aa;
   	int	a = 1;

or is

   void foo(void)
   {
   	int	a = 1;
   	int	aa;

IMHO: neither really helps to visually find or scan for
automatics so the whole concept isn't particularly useful.
