Thanks! One particular item of interest to me is that I wasn't able
gauge is the use of "this->" to explicitly state that the variable is a
member of the object. Is this acceptable?

It's considered bad form everywhere, except for inheritance related work
(where is actually needed).

P.S. Do you have any preference as to which IDE you use for kicad? I
know it has nothing to do with coding guidelines, but I am looking for
suggestions, as my favorite until recent IDE (NetBeans) is incapable of
handling large projects.

I use vim :D should have no problem handling the guidelines.
