Our coding standard is that there shall be no coding standard.  As was
stated before, whoever creates the file, their style is the style that
should be used when anyone makes changes to that file.  Concerning the
automatic source indenter, I know I would be peeved if i checked my
code back out and it was changed to a style I don't like.  There are
way too many different styles of coding out there, and each developer
has a right to like his or her own style, and we shouldn't force one
specific style on anyone.
