The reason I mentioned it is that I was trying to work an xdoc and I noticed
some inconsistant indent size, plus a few long lines.  Reformatting an
entire xdoc or large portions of it would mean that every line gets changed
in the patch.  Not as big a problem as it would be in Java code, but it
seems somehow abnormal.
