Thanks, that is an improvement.

I have to admit I usually look at the source directly rather than the
generated version, but I still like the conventions to be followed and
people do have different preferences.  It does give a different
perspective, a bit like seeing code printed out.

You can also see the list of all changes made and get a diff containing them and so on.  Please, kick the tires and see what you think -- I guess even if useful edits get made they won't be suitable for submission to Bazaar for copyright reasons -- and let me know of any problems you find or feature ideas you have.

I don't think copyright is any problem as long as the contributors are
happy for us to ship it.  I suspect that most people who could make
corrections would be happy just sending a patch directly but I'd
certainly welcome questions about things that might be unclear.

Thanks for the reviews.
