Some cool kids do, some cool kids don't. Some do both, depending on their mood.

The advantage of a leading , is that now the comma's line up, and if
you want to add an item on the end of a list


It's just a one line change, whereas with the comma after, you'd have
to change the previous line as well - which is more effort and gives
more noise in the darcs copy.
