I doubt one does this via a GUI in Emacs, since Emacs has no such thing
as a GUI. And it surely stores the settings in a plain-text file as
well, just that this file is not cluttering up the actual source tree.
Same applies to Eclipse, except that one uses a GUI to set up the
plain-text formatting options.
