in-fact i wouldn't mind if C++ ditched the braces completely in the next version of the standard and switched to using indentation to set the scope)

Easy there, trigger.

EDIT:

By the way, I've never asked anyone this because I've rarely had anyone else read my code, but I wonder if this habit I have is a case of "overcommenting." Basically, I keep the opening brace on the same line, and I always comment the closing brace, even if it's really really obvious. It helps me with re-reading my code, but I do sometimes wonder if another programmer might think I'm overdoing it haha. For example:

void myFunction(){
if(/*condition*/){
doSomething(x, y);
doSomethingElse(a, b);
switch(/*condition*/){
case blah:
break;
}//end of switch
}//end of if
}//end of myFunction()
