svn-dev.el and py-indent-offset

I noticed that suddenly out of the blue somebody changed my
py-indent-offset from the default 4 to 2, in *all* Python buffers.

Lots of searching, racking of brain... "Hey, there's a
python-mode-hook!" ("Of course", I thought).

And there's a "svn-python-mode-hook" in there!

And that sets py-indent-offset to 2!

Ouch again... "which is presumably visiting a file in the Subversion
project". Oh sure... desktop.el quite kills that notion.

The best solution, from my POV, would be to just go with Python's std
indent of 4. }:-)

If not that... well, check that the Python source we're about to edit
really is part of Subversion. Simple heuristic, put the whole of
the hook into

  (when (string-match "/subversion/" (buffer-file-name))

(Tested and works)

We could even have the user configure the regexp to match... but since
the default CVS checkout creates a subversion subdir (with two more
levels of subversion subdirs inside ;-) I think this is not really

Bye, J

If you can't solve a problem with brute force, you're not using enough.
