I agree. I just want to clarify that the reason for xerl
was to let (SUN) textedit "hackers" to use something
that at least could do automatic indentation. For example,
before xerl, we had students at some courses that wrote
Erlang programs where each line started in column 1 or
even worse, wrote the whole program in one (wrapped) line... :-)

Cheers /Tobbe
(Ps. xerl used pxw which was a layer on top of the Athena widget set)
