I wonder whether there are empirical results which show that a certain  
kind of spacing is more readable for a certain kind of programmer (for  
example, experienced, novice, ...).

I remember that I once read a paper about camelCase vs. underscore  
function names. I think that they came to the conclusion that  
camelCase is advantages for non-programmers but there was no  
difference when they tested programmers. But I might be wrong here.
