I really, really, really, really think that writing a script that
does this automatically would save everybody a lot of time and
effort.  Such scripts already exist!  -- although they'll almost
certainly require some modification.

- no need to manually change indentation in .itely files.  Or .ly
  files / snippets / etc.
- no need to manually fix broken indentation on a yearly basis
  when things get committed by accident.
- no need for us to argue about each case individually; we just
  set out the general rules and then apply them.
- no need to constantly remind new doc editors or snippet authors
  to read the CG; just tell them to run the script, and it'd
  either do the right thing, or warn about wrong things.
- the script would be useful for users and general .ly
  file-writing as well.
- etc.

- Graham
