indenting the case is something i prefer over not for a start

$long_variable example... well, we could follow that but... painful
for nothing?

These are just what I like and find easy to follow and read without
having to think much when i jump into new code. Mostly its just about
not being lazy and getting over typing a few extra lines to save
headaches maintaining.

Ok, well, it's been awhile since I've looked at PEAR coding standards. 
I definitely don't like their variable naming standards.  I don't think,
for example, that all private/protected variables & methods should be
prefixed with underscore.  I don't think it's necessary -- and in the
case of variables, I think they should generally all be
private/protected anyway.

The PEAR coding standards was established with PHP 4 in mind.
Since Propel is targeted at PHP 5.x, which implements private/protected access modifiers, we don't really need to "emulate" this functionality by using underscores etc.

Just my five cents.
