I definitely can, I'm just a little unsure about what the special 
outdenting cases might be. The way to do it in UltraEdit is to specify 
which characters (on a preceding line) an outdented line should follow, 
so obviously for a C language you could specify Unindent = '}' and that 
would help a lot. But with Python it seems more difficult to figure out 
the cases where you would outdent.
