Thanks. Are the erlang.el changes in 'pu' susceptible to new
mis-indentations by nature? The original issue is not important
enough to introduce regressions if fixing it means erlang.el
will get imprecise or hard to get right.
Out of curiosity, what about using erl_parse, erl_scan, etc. via an
escript instead? Does that sound viable and make sense?
