Details

Virtually all coding styles have whitespace surrounding braces, so things obviously 'look' better that way, plus we're training ourselves to think so.

GCLI could automagically make things look better by displaying
> echo {document.title}

More like:
> echo { document.title }

Without requiring the user to enter the extra spaces.

This is a valid bug, but it's hard, and not something I'd recommend as an easy way to get started. I suggest bug 795847 or bug 803526
