That would be true if the compiler enforced the style rules. But
Walter can only enforce his rules within his project - his right,
common sense, and I'm sure his main intent.

My habit is to indent two spaces at a time. I've posted some snippets
in that style. No-one has complained. But if I was contributing to the
compiler or library, I'd expect to follow the rules.
