Can we maybe just use indent? 

Indent has about 18,000 options, so you can convince it to do most of
what you'd want.

If someone write up a list of indent options and stick the command in a
one line script somewhere prominent (like / :)) then we can just run the
code formatter once over the entire tree, and then just tell people to
run it in future.

I seem to remember someone telling me that the Linux kernel guys did
this to their taste.

[I did something similar in java-gnome, putting a configuration for
Eclipse's built in Java code formatter into the tree. Someone tries to
send me a branch with rediculous format and whitespace change I just
tell them to run the code formatter, do another commit, and resubmit.
And anyone using Eclipse has it run automatically for them. Makes for
nice diffs.]

Yeah, but if that policy just says "Run ./" then it'll
be easy for everyone.
