I have not re-compiled in a while, nor did I read the whole thread.
Perhaps things have progressed since the version I currently have.

Consistent and not-too-small indenting is important.  Basing indents on
the width of the fixed pitch space and tab stops on a multiple of that
would help, compared to what the version I have does.
