As a devout vim user myself I have thought often about how to 
accomodate both religions.  The one method which seems like it
has potential is to store only the abstract syntax itself in the
source code repository.  When you check out a source module you 
run it through syntax_tools to format it the way you want it.
I would want 132 columns with tab only indentation.  The rest
of you can have the standard emacs mode.

I figure it's either a fabulous idea or an unworkable one.

What do you think?
