I don’t think consistency is a hobgoblin (I hope I understand the meaning correctly). When you are new to a project you should follow the style of what’s already there and not do something completely different. Obviously there may be good reason but that should be discussed and you also should ask yourself if you are just not willing to adapt or if you are actually making things better.
