Ok, Now I am getting fed up with all this petty bickering over indent 
amounts.  Alexandre wants 4 space indents.  As soon as I get Linux 
installed on my box, I'm going to _MANUALLY_ go through every single 
file and make sure that we have 4 space indent, since I wouldnt know how 
to write up a script to do it automatically..  Then I'm going to make 
diffs and submit patches.  I honestly prefer 2-space, but at the same 
time, I can understand why most devs prefer 4 space.  My question is 
though, how long will it take once the changes have been made before the 
  code is all mixed up again?  Is there any way we can just not accept 
patches that dont conform? Of course if we do that, there would be some 
angry devs, so maybe a compromise for this would be to accept the patch 
but run a script to auto format it to 4 space before it gets committed 
to CVS??
