I'd personally be very interested in using a plugin that can format the 
code precisely automatically. IIRC VisualStudio does this very well but 
is not flexible as to code style (or I didn't find the preferences). I 
suspect it would be quite difficult to write a good one that is at the 
same time accurate, flexible and supports multiple non-similar languages 
(C-style vs Python, for example).

Best of luck,
