The indentation problem only existed because the first version committed had
mixed indentation, I am not sure but maybe it was a 0.14 problem with the
setting, since I installed 0.15 everything is coming up tabs.  Hopefully
this is fixed.

My real reason for suggesting a formatter was not for indentation but for
other areas of the code eg spaces around ()s other operators etc.  I was
simply trying to ensure that my code matched your expectations taking into
account that the format is different to what I use most of the time, and
being human I am going to get it wrong sometimes, no matter how often I

they all seemed to have side effects.  The one I suggested simply had the
