Oh hey, that's a good point. All the stuff i saw so far indented 2
spaces. WHY?
Can I just indent a TAB if my editor permits this? indenting 4 spaces (2
nests) is easy, but suppose I hit one extra space- not enough difference
to be really noticeable. Let's talk about indentation in php for a
moment, could we?

I use PHPEclipse for an editor. It has the best code beautifier I've used for PHP class editing. I hit Ctrl+Shift+F and the whole file jumps into the format I have predefined. It handles indentation, curly braces up or down, spacing, etc.

I can take code snippets from anywhere and with a couple keystrokes, the format adheres to my preferences and is readable.

(un?)fortunately, he was no longer with the company, which was why I
got to take it over. It wasn't the oddest thing, by far. His designs
were hugely complex (way overengineered for the task at hand, plus
they didn't work), and he didn't use any consistent indenting style.
