Good evening everybody!

I've taken a look at st today and made some changes that have proven to
improve the code while working on sbase and ubase in the last few months.

These patches imply layout and style changes in most places of the code,
so before you grab your pitchforks and torches:
The patches on the wiki are broken for git HEAD anyway. The next thing on
my list is to go through _all_ patches on the wiki and make releases for
0.6, which has been tagged yesterday, and git HEAD preferrably after these
patches have been merged.

I know about the clause in the suckless style guide: The project's style
has precedence. Nevertheless, I think it's only beneficial to have a
consistent style across the multiple projects we have and most importantly
across a single project in particular.
I once read that suckless is indeed popular for some people because of our
great "brain dead C dialect", thus I think it's a step in the right direction
to make this dialect even more solid.

Now is the best time to merge style changes like this, one day after the latest
version has been tagged. This gives us (and especially me) enough time to take
care of the wiki-patches.

Please let me know what you think about it!
