I too like a build output to be perfectly tidy, no disturbances in the geometric arrangement of characters as they stream past on the console. Getting all the source code file names to be the same length matters a lot too, in the interests of ultimate tidyness. Link messages make me wince, because.

Yet, I like the logs produced by the code I write to be indented according to the call stack depth from main(). I like the ebb and flow of the indentation, as the code runs, like waves rushing up the beach, and then washing back out again. Recursive calls look like a Tsunami - it just keeps coming! Run away, run away!

Er, do I need help?
