Working on so many projects with so many different conventions is quite
difficult to adapt vim/emacs/whatever to each project.
I like the idea that if a project has its own coding style guidelines
and wants to enforce them, it should also ship a tool to help doing

gstreamer has a git-hook that uses indent (gnu indent) to force or
complain about coding style before the commit is accepted by git.
webkit also has its own coding complainer (webkit-check-style) that is
always called before webkit-upload-patch.
I've heard that clang also has a built-in tool to fix coding style.

Might be a good idea to take a look on those tools.
