To some of my colleagues, it seems to come naturally; it takes them no extra effort.

My answer: No, quite to the contrary. Cleaning up messy, unreadable code (whether deliberately or unintentionally looking like entries to the IOCCC) to make it lucid, readable an maintainable, is far more satisfying. It gives me the same pleasure as the joy it gives me to delete code lines that are no longer needed. Often, those are two sides of the same coin.
