Wait... what!?

I had no idea. Well, that's *great* news!

Next question: is there a way to push this through pretty-print?  I looked for a mechanism in the docs, but didn't find one.

Perhaps the stepper should just forget about using pretty-print. Is the editor's indentation machinery exposed in a way that could be used by the stepper?
