True.  Let's just keep manually formatting everything.  I mean,
people's tastes differ for a reason.

This has the additional advantage that the programmer implementing a 
piece of code can leave her signature more easily, by using ever so 
slightly indentation variations.  Others will then know to stay away 
from code sections that they do not 'own', so to say.

Good.  Just picking a random animal for now -- until we settle for
zebra -- should work.

Brilliant!  Let's define the MOOSE/coding standards in an Opera!
