when i worked at dynasoft we used ''indent'' with company default 
settings before checkin to the repository. at checkout i could 
''un-indent'' with my own settings.

at ericsson i write code with tabs, and then format (syntax_tools) to 
the ''correct'' layout before checkin.
i have not considered un-formatting when checking out...
