I've not mentioned this yet, however, it's probably time to. I
find the new indentation method to be *very* difficult to work
with.

What is the point in it?

To me, it just makes the job of updating the packages more
difficult. It should be the other way around. I have not been
indenting for this reason. To me, no indentation is easier to
enter and easier to read.

I do normally indent any program code or scripts I write, but I
find the XML easier to read without indentation. Perhaps I'm just
used to reading it without indentation and will change over time,
however that doesn't fix the fact that it is more time consuming
to do the indentation.

Just an opinion.
