Weird, I thought I had answered this. 

In any case, I think that we can do much better than Kate by using the du-
chain. If it makes sense, I think we should integrate this into the API, so 
that we can get indent-as-you-type, I even think David's indent-at-enter lacks 
ambition.. why not at each keystroke? Imagine being able to just type away, 
and having long lines split and rejoin sensible while type and delete. Not 
saying we will get this in March, but if the idea was at least possible with 
the API suggested, I'd be cool.

If you put your name below the '-- ', email clients will not quote your name 
at the bottom... just saying! :D

Kind regards, Esben
