I understand.
The style I used for PDP-10 macro assembly language was
   *) Indent two spaces for error return from subroutine or UUO (or jsys)
   *) Indent one space for instructions that skip or may skip.

The other point of contention was what to put between the opcode and
its arguments; space vs tab.  I had some TECO macros that would
undo the damage after pristine code had been munged by someone
not conforming to style.  :-)
