There are valid arguments the other way, and you make them. But
remember, GTK+ is using GNU style bracing and that pretty much takes the
question out of the matter. Doing:

 if (conditition)
     single_statement ();
     another_single_statement ();

consistently wouldn't really fly. (Plus, there's the question of all the
existing code...)

[ Along with the nested if thing, if you are specifying exactly
  the style, the other thing to note is that if one branch of an if gets
  braces because it is multiline, the other branch should usually get
  them too ]
