Coding style and example dissector

Could someone please write a coding style section for the new dissectors and perhaps
point to the best example dissector.

The example would match the coding style and use, preferably, a majority of the API.

I would then code EXACTLY to that standard.

Currently, many of the dissectors I have submitted are having arbitrary white space/style
changes made.

I completely understand changes, for bugs, API changes, and warnings missed because of cross-platform

But I don't understand the need to change FROM a consistent style to some other style.
