please don't. The auto indent currently works like all of the C editors
I've used: THINK C, Metrowerks, Project Builder, Xcode. I am too used
to the current method. The current method is dumb and I prefer dumb to
something I have to out smart when I don't want to follow its rules.
For example there is a tool called AutoPairs that automatically types
the matching closing bracket for any bracket you type and puts the
insertion pointer between them. I tried this but in the end found it
very annoying because I didn't realize how often there are times when I
only want to type the open bracket.
