Feature: Force `else` to go on same line as closing brace #4692

Since I'm using "1tbs" for "brace-style", I prefer an else statement to go on the same line as the closing curly brace of an if statement.

However, eslint does not warn for this code:

if (true) {

presumably because the else statement here does not have braces.

It would be nice if there were a way to detect this anyway. I would like to force code to look like:

if (true) {
} else

See also #4591.
