Again, I think you are reacting to only one of the options (re code tags) which I agree with further thought would be no good and the code tags should be left alone for just the reasons you say. But I did also suggest that there are other options to choose from - it for example not being intrusive to have perltidy tags at the disposal of authors to use or not as they please.
