If I had noticed back then I'd have been against it :) It's only mentioned
briefly in the topic of spaces, and I don't think a lot of people ever even
considered used them by default.

But now I don't care, haven't used parentheses anywhere so far though (unless it
was to avoid possible confusion), but I'm not opposed to changing that behaviour.
