I agree with you that they need tweaking. Not to mention that I can't run my "GNU indent 1.9.1" on with them: indent: unknown option "-nbbo"...

Your examples are perfect for showing that the options MUST be corrected. This is what I meant with my previous mail addressing these matters.

These indent runnings should be one-time-only. We need to be able to track all changes using the 'cvs diff' command and if we contantly are gonna run indent with various options it'll make that impossible.
