Given that people are currently editing headers to remove spaces by hand
this sounds like a good idea. One thing, how does one pass
``indent.pro'' rather than have it pick up ``.indent.pro''? I suspect
it can be maintained largely by hand (please not another perl script to
maintain it - we can't make perl a requirement on developers :-)
