It's not overwhelming, but the preponderance seems to be towards putting it
on its own line (the exceptions are usually small trait specializations
like isPodLike). I give some rough numbers here <
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.compilers.llvm.devel/63378> (and see
Daniel's reply). Daniel is open to changing it, but asked me to gather some
more opinions.
