I'd /love/ to have IDE settings for formatting saved in a project. This is
the 21st century, all IDEs support this, if you do not use an IDE (hi
Gilles), then, well, you probably also like driving a stick for "control"
:) The only tricky part is how organize such a folder to account for
different IDEs and versions. For example ide/eclipse/3.7.1,
ide/intellij/10.5.3, and so on. Then you can move the IDE files to where
each IDE wants it.
