I haven't touched that code since the sprint, but a student named
Mateusz Rukowicz worked on it for a past Summer of Code, I think.
I never heard of the outcome of that particular project.


Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
