That's why there are coding standards.

Stop edit wars of taste, and close a trivial discussion once and for all, see also bikeshedding[^].

A coding standard is the first thing to get before doing formal code reviews (When asking about what to prepare for a code review, I was surprised how highly this ranked. Now I know.) It doesn't even need to force one single specific style, it can allow different bracings, etc. A professional developers can stick to a coding style, even if it's not his favorite. If they can't, you need to agree on - or decree - an automatted formatting macro that is used for dispute resolution.

Code Reviews are hard socially. We have better experience with informal ones ("Can we look together at...") - but they don't happen as often as I wanted to. I've read of others praising the advantages of formal ones.
