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
