That /is/ how I'm envisioning it. Like Matt said, don't indent names in
a namespace when everything in the file is in that namespace. For the
cases of more than one namespace in a file, or entities in the file that
are not in that namespace, we indent. (Or split up the files, whichever
makes more sense in that case.)
More briefly: everything as normal, just two spaces to the left.
The indentation within a class/function should be like you said, as
C++STYLE describes. For example, _Vector_alloc_base is wrong at present.
I would therefore like to posit that computing's central challenge, viz. "How
not to make a mess of it," has /not/ been met.
