Irregardless of whatever the GNU coding standards say, programmers do need
to read the output of programming tools, and I am not going to reimplement
indent inside orbit-idl. If you are violently opposed to the use of
indent, then recompile your ORBit, and it will fall back to using /bin/cat
(assuming a requirement of /bin/cat does not violate the beloved GNU
coding standards).

BTW, the ORBit in CVS should be friendlier to non-GNU indents now. I also
added 'Requires: indent' to the ORBit-devel package so people will not be
tripped up if they take that route in the future.
