I'm not stuck. But:

- I can place two 80 column xterms side by side, and an additional afterstep
  doc, on a medium sized X screen.

- I can edit the same document from the text console, if need should be.

- Besides, using more then 3 or 4 indentation levels makes code unreadable,
  IMO. If you don't believe this, look at the examples in the Amiga Kernel
  Reference Manuals.
