But that's so butt ugly visually distressing!
if (a == b) {
   c;
}

The reason I do it that way is to demark the beginning of the block(it's parent) with the end of the block. A further inner one would have all of that bumped in an indent's worth. The idea is for the eye-candy to be very easy to decode, visually. Note the vertical row in your version. Also, I save a line!!!!

But, I'm practical - everyone like their own indents or they'd be using something else.
