What do you think about using an auto-formatter for C code?

The most surprising thing writing C again after couple of years of Go was
the amount of manual formatting needed to write code.

I even added a config file for clang-format in snek-ev3, but only managed
to produce something resembling, but not identical to the code style in
the rest of the project.
