You're probably right, Ben. Thanks for chiming in.

My situaion is not all that bad. We've had all the developers for a
software package leave, and I and another guy have had to pick up the
ball. We both have been on the sidelines of the project since its
beginning, so we're not novices, and we both have had complaints about
its direction. So now we get to put up or shut up.

We pretty much agree on the coding format we like, so a one-pass
cleanup is acceptable. Then we can both live with a suitable hook to
enforce the standard. We will then expect our new hires to conform,
so the format hook will not be a surprise if it fires.

At least that's what I'm thinking today.
