FWIW if the astyle maintainer didn't pipe up I was going to offer to
maintain it in their absence. However a quick investigation shows that
upstream astyle has had no development in over a year - which means no one
for me to push bugs at. (and there are bugs, heheh) - And I don't intend to
become the developer for astyle...

Hmm despite the apparent lack of upstream development on this one - m4 is
pretty rock solid (compared to astyle at least) ... I'll have a deeper look
to see if I'm willing to offer on this one.
