I'd squash in the attached patch, but it's not necessary as it gets
rid of non automatic indentation whitespace, but makes the code look
cleaner :)

I'm not entirely convinced this is a good idea.  This means that
when looking at the code, it is no longer obvious what the nesting
of XML elements is supposed to be - they are all the level.

I concur with Daniel here - I debated about dropping the leading whitespace and using a lot more virBufferAdjustIndent when first writing this series (since it would have been less work to convert from my v1, where I had already removed all the leading whitespace anyways), but it just doesn't scale as well. My end decision was to only remove whitespace and start at level 0 just for the functions that can be called from multiple locations; single-use call-chains were easier to keep indented as they were before the series.

The only reason I used virBufferAdjustIndent inside virSysinfoProcessorFormat, against the rule of thumb that I generally used of keeping the in-function indentation, was to fit things in 80 columns.


I agree with you and that's a reasonable reason.:-)


ACK, virBufferEscapeString nicely simplifies the code :)

Pushed.
