I've had this behavior with most every editor I've had. I lived with it.
However, when I went to vim, I found out that it will automatically
indent braces and code properly. I thought, "Gee, that's nice. Save me
some work". But as it turns out, it's saved me a lot of debug time. When
the indenting goes wonky in vim, I know I've failed to close a brace
somewhere, or put too many in. It has about the same benefit to me as
syntax highlighting (which ensures I don't misspell key words).
