Yes, that would be good.

What about a version that read from standard input and wrote to
standard input?  I'm thinking about the documentation -- we could
automatically format all lilypond input syntax.

The documentation _mostly_ follows our semi-defined style already,
but I'm sure that there's a handful of places where it doesn't.
It be nice if we could auto-format all 2143 portions of lilypond
input in the docs.  :)

The snippets->advanced scheme might help here, but I'm not certain
if they're all formatted correctly.

The definitive guide[1] would be "whatever emacs does" -- if you
can install emacs and try its formatting on a few scheme files,
you could satisfy all your questions about this.  :)

[1]  I dislike installing 30 megs of programs just to have good
indentation, which is why I consider this python indentation
script such a great project.

Sorry, I still haven't looked at the program; I'm just commenting
on the discussion.  If you already do this, great!

(BTW, this end-of-line whitespace-removal is a *huge* issue for
the docs and our code.  When the lilypond indenting script is
done, it would be fantastic if you could write a similar program
to help the documentation writers and programmers.  :)
