FWIW, early returns are part of the LLVM Coding standard:
http://llvm.org/docs/CodingStandards.html#use-early-exits-and-continue-to-simplify-code <http://llvm.org/docs/CodingStandards.html#use-early-exits-and-continue-to-simplify-code>

So it makes sense for LLDB to adopt this approach at some point.

I don’t have an opinion about whether it happens before or after the "big reformat", but I guess I agree with your point that doing it would be good to do it for the most egregious cases before the reformat.
