IMHO this is exactly the wrong way round: Pick one of the existing
formatters (hindent, brittany, ormolu, ...) and stick with it for a while.
If you don't like what you see, you can try another one. But the main point
is: These formatters embody good practice learned the hard way from lots of
other people, and using them will make your code more readable not only by
you, but by others, too. The "not invented here" syndrome is seldom a good
idea, and consistency is far more important than small details you might
not like.
