I don't know about other languages (other than indent, and isn't there a
cindent? or am I mixing up VIm's functionality with a pretty-printer?)
but perl has perltidy.

I've heard people mention PHP and Python beautifiers (although, since
python is so structured I didn't think you could get into style wars
with it).

My point, though, is that arguing over something that is easily
changeable and customizable is a pointless waste of time and energy.
Time and energy better spent on convincing the heathens that VIm is the
One True Editor(tm).

Wait ... did I say that last part out loud?
