First, coding style was not part of our negotiations nor our agreement so we
must do nothing. And secondly, you must be a suckless contributor for the
suckless's coding style to apply and you're not. And thirdly, the coding style
is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules. Welcome aboard the
suckless community, Mister Pedersen.

On a more serious note: Single suckless projects may actually deviate from the
official coding style you linked due to historic, esoteric or other outworldly
reasons, if the maintainer wants to do so. Consensus is hard to achieve on
coding style, so the official coding style is more the result of a democratic
discussion about what is sane and should be recommended than a hard law.
