in reply to The One True Style of indentation:

At the risk of being a freak, I must say, I don't care for tabs or two spaces. Two spaces is too few. A tab is a tab of a lot too much, especially for most normal terminals. It doesn't help that tabs are essentially variable width either.

Tabs mixed with spaces are even worse. If there are to be leading spaces, they should all be spaces.

And can we please get ping-pong line styles working? This left to right stuff is killing me. j/k

Example:
use pingpong;
#!/usr/bin/perl
;"n\dlroW olleH" tnirp
# ^ Much better
