Hey, I don't know if enabling "Format on save" is such a good idea.
There have been some very weird edge cases (that I can't reproduce)
where my file's syntax has been modified and didn't compile after

Normally if I format it from the keystroke (Alt-E F F) I understand
that the file can get altered, and always compile to make sure. But in
case I do this, quit the IDE and don't have my file versioned - I'd be
annoyed if anything bad were to happen to it.

Or maybe you can make a new keystroke for "auto-format and save" that
could be used for this usecase.
