I see what you are saying about the formatting.  I have starting using one 
space indenting as you suggest.  It works fine.  I just had to tweak my 
editor (kwrite) a little to make it more comfortable.

I'll see what I can do with the user's guide.  I'm working on some material 
for it now but being very careful by checking it against the SQL standards 
and what Postgres does (extensions/quirks).
