I don't know what cases might be interpreted different than the  
programmer intended.  I have a long standing practice in all  
programming languages to write highly readable code..I therefore  
never hit on errors related to code style.  My guess is that erlang's  
parse tools are much more refined than many other implementations in  
other languages.  So don't let me scare you by thinking there are  
some issues to worry about.  But not putting spaces on either side of  
a | or a ! is very hard for a guy like me to read regardless of what  
erlang thinks ;-).
