            Bug ID: 35098
           Summary: clang-format support { on its own line, but only on
                    multi-line conditionals
           Product: clang
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: Formatter
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: vladimir at pobox.com

I'd like to propose an additional brace option for conditionals -- attached
braces if the conditional expression fits on a single line, otherwise a break
before the brace.   That is:

    if (something < 10) {          // one-line condition, attached brace

    if (something < 10 && SomeOtherCondition() &&
    {                              // multi-line condition, brace on its own

Right now, the only options are either putting the { on its own line always
(making the simple statement above 4 lines instead of 3), or attaching it to
the end always, making the complex statement above have a hidden, hanging {,
like so:

    if (something < 10 && SomeOtherCondition() &&
        SomeOtherCheckCall()) {

I'm willing to take a stab at this myself if there's interest in having this as
an option in BraceWrapping (probably as a "MultilineOnly" option to
BraceWrapping - AfterControlStatement, in addition to true/false)
