Has anyone considered adding vi/vim options to the files themselves?
Granted, not a trivial task, but it would ensure anyone using vim would
have the correct settings. I don't know if emacs has the same ability
(I've seen the "Hey emacs, this is a C file" stuff...)
Certainly it does; it even knows that certain variables are safe to allow
files to set without warning the user and it has the indention marked as such.

I think this would be what you would want.

 * Local variables:
 * eval: (c-set-style "bsd")
 * tab-width: 4
 * c-basic-offset: 4
 * End:

But it would have to be on the end of every single file which would be pretty

Yeah, which is the real question... do people think it's worth it enough
to move towards doing that? Of course the nice thing is that *anyone*
(even me :) ) could produce a patch to do that.

No, please don't. Greg is right, it is way too heavyweight. It's not a one off exercise. You'd have to check every new file.
