OK, I apologize, I was a bit too zealous there.
All I'm trying to say is that there is research that suggests that we can
do better than we are currently doing, so perhaps we should try that?
I'm not trying to deal with the other KNF issues (although I certainly
believe there is room for improvement there, too), I'm just talking about
the indent issue. I'll let others help improve the other KNF issues.
