Let me put the question the other way round: Is there some ~easy[1]
way to transform a "badly" indented file into a "properly" indented file, 
with as little manual effort as possible? Assuming the file's in proper 
structure, XML-wise, of course.

Personally I include emacs as "easy"; problematic would be things like 
GNOME or KDE, size- and dependency-wise. This doesn't answer the "no 
manual effort" part though (I like emacs myself, but am not competent 
enough to tell what psgml-mode is :).
