We prioritize reducing clutter in patches over minimal clutter
in code.
The result of that is to add {} whenever that does not require
extra lines, since it has the potential of improving readability
of future patches significantly (when someone adds a new {
you'd otherwise have to carefully check whether or not they
also changed the if condition).
