;;; Commentary:
;; Purpose:
;; To support simple indentation of Haskell scripts.
;; Installation:
;; To bind TAB to the indentation command for all Haskell buffers, add
;; this to .emacs:
;; (add-hook 'haskell-mode-hook 'turn-on-haskell-simple-indent)
;; Otherwise, call `turn-on-haskell-simple-indent'.
;; Customisation:
;; None supported.
;; History:
;; If you have any problems or suggestions, after consulting the list
;; below, email quoting the version of you are
;; using, the version of Emacs you are using, and a small example of
;; the problem or suggestion.
;; Version 1.0:
;; Brought over from Haskell mode v1.1.
;; Present Limitations/Future Work (contributions are most welcome!):
;; (None so far.)
;;; Code:
;; All functions/variables start with
;; `(turn-(on/off)-)haskell-simple-indent'.

Indent points are positions of non-whitespace following

non-whitespace (indentation) of every nonblank line between the
position and the current line. If there is no visible indent
point beyond the current column, position given by
`indent-next-tab-stop' is used instead."
