Hi Craig --

We don't have a PrettyPrinter in Trunk that serves our current needs. It's also not only an issue of presentation but also of which format will be persisted, e.g., to cover edge cases in understanding.

Since there are aspects of the underlying program theory in each module not explicable but implicit, we rely on th formatting of each module's main authors at the moment.

Hi all--

      Whoa, is the pretty-printer not configurable enough? Can't each
person automatically see all code formatted the way they like it,
regardless of diffing and storage?

      I'd love to make all formatting debates moot, if possible.
