I was not talking about the conventions used in standards issued by
*ISO WG14* and *ISO WG21*, I was referring to usage in the wild (and
"de facto standards" that prohibits/frowns upon *"type cv-qualifier"* vs
*"cv-qualifier type"*.

As this is becoming off-topic, I would be happy to discuss such
preference in a separate discussion (perhaps over IRC as it seems like
a suitable medium).

No comment.

Adjustments will be made to satisfy the expressed opinions. I will
wait a little before posting an updated patch so that others might
have a chance to ask for other changes (as posting patch after patch
with minor changes are more tedious to review).
