Except for the server and some driver modules, we don't have a coding style
as such. Especially in Xlib, the coding style is largely: "do what's already
done in the code surrounding your patch".

In the server we have an indent-defined coding style (see
util/modular/x-indent.sh), but other modules have other styles. evdev uses 4
spaces, no tabs, intel uses 1 tab, etc. If you want some sort of
auto-adjustment I recommend to use vimdir or whatever the emacs equivalent
