Auto-Intend option apply "Smart Indent" feature to some languages (C, Java, PHP, Javascript) since Notepad++ 6.7

This feature promote only K&R indent style and become a nightmare if we prefer another style like Allman or Whitesmiths.
I had explained how to solve this problem with NppAutoIndent plugin at end of the issue #296

I submit that Auto-Indent feature include an optional option to choose between "Previous line" (Allman), "Block Indent" (Whitesmiths), or "Smart Indent" (K&R) methods like NppAutoIndent plugin.

Nb: Notepad++ applied "Previous line" method before 6.7 release.

It's could be great that Notepad++ detect indent style of current document and switch Auto-Indent to right method.

Nb: more indent styles exists, see

My personal skill is to use Whitesmiths style if I create JS or PHP file, Allman style for CSS file, but I apply K&R (or other) style while I edit a third party file. I'm most aware than Notepad++ ^^
