I also hate the K&R brace style. Really want the ability to customize the formatting of Swift code.

As Swift is getting traction in more and more platforms outside of Apple, we can expect that many coding styles different from what Apple imposes with SourceKit's indenting rules will emerge. According tohttps://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-146, we now have decoupled indenting logic from SourceKit into its own library, and a "swift-format" tool is in the making.

I am working on adding support for different coding styles to libIDE. For example, with my changes you could decide how a case label should be indented with respect to its parent switch context, among other things. The current, hard coded indenting decisions in libIDE could be named the "Apple" style, just like Clang supports Google, LLVM, Mozilla, coding styles for C++. Also, this is something that can be supported by external tools like Xcode quite easily.

Do you think this is a good feature to have?
