This is AWESOME! Thanks, Robby!

The amazing thing is that students can immediately *see* whether two
(or more) pieces of data are on the same level as one another. No
matter how much I tell them to use indenting to their advantage, my
students don't seem to want to. This would help them see when things
are not at the right level much quicker, I think. (But, as Henk said,
it'd be nice to not have the whitespace interfering.)
