In many companies, there are strict policies for formatting code,
naming variables, etc.

I think Pabs referred to a possibility to distribute a set of
rules between developers. This can currently be done by sending
the respective astyle command line arguments (which our astyle
plugin cannot parse yet), a 'ts=8 sts=4 sw=4' string for vi or 
a Local Variables section for Emacs. I don't think you will be 
able to convince any editor developer to include an xml parser 
for such a purpose though ;-)
