in retrospect, it may have been a mistake to not open emacs for 20 years and like, see if anything I didn't like about it in 1999 might have been fixed
configuring tabs to my liking in emacs is still a nightmare.. until I found https://github.com/spwhitton/haskell-tab-indent
...which was developed specifically for editing my git-annex program.
yes, I'm currently apt-get installing the emacs config someone wrote and packaged in Debian specifically to deal with my annoying indentation standards
