Well, "pg_bsd_indent is whatever you can find in the FreeBSD repo" is
not a rule that is going to work either.  We need to have a standardized
version that all developers can run and get the same results.  So I
think we'll either have a blessed tarball that we pass around (same
as we do now), or we'll put it into our own tree.  I don't really see
much downside to the latter except bloat.
