Simon=B9 is usually very positive to adding enhancements, if this really
turns out to be a problem, I propose that you ask for e.g.
-fno-tabs : indentation with tabs is an error, only spaces allowed
-fconsistent-indent : indents must be exactly matching in a block
or whatever floats your boat, and helps you enforce your particular
coding standard. Extra credit if you supply the patch to GHC, of
=B9 Haven't used the other compilers as much, but it's not my impression
that they are any less open to persuasion.
If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
