Thats not part of UI. Most cars work the same from the outside (ie UI) but
I pressume there differences on the inside. Check out the compilers/build
tools in other products and the type of input they spit out. It all follows
a semi-standard which ant breaks in default form. What makes ants format
better for breaking the semi-standard (and some tools that rely on it) ?
