That Comma

I've been seeing things like the following recently.
I hope you see that in order for this to work, it has to be green.
Now, I immediately want to put a comma after "that", but I've been seeing this in a number of places recently. Is this some kind of new style that I'm not aware of?

Edited to add: Here's another way of thinking about is: the commas around "in order for this to work" are acting like parentheses. And just as you wouldn't leave off one of the parentheses, you shouldn't leave off one of the commas.
