and I would never indent the ifTrue: unless it has a matching ifFalse:, so
the above would be
"Do you notice the visual glitch above?"].
and otherwise it would be
ifTrue: [self doOneThing]
ifFalse: [self doTheOther]

It does indeed. I tend to indent the body of the block with two tabs so
that it is to the right of the ensure: or on:do:, in those cases.
