	In a previous life, we had a set of indent options
	that were used to put files in "standard" form.
	Non-one actually **used** that perticular form,
	but it was easy to postprocess stuff that was
	goping into RCS, thus minimizing rcs-file size.

	As you might guess, it was buried in an rcs wrapper,
	as that was it's locus of interest (;-))
