The problem with SAS is that the grammar is extremely complicated. I've been
improving that for the last 5 years. Now, the grammar is mostly correct. Most
syntax highlighting (which is based on the grammar) is correct, but there are
still instances that are incorrect. Auto-indenting also takes it cue from the
grammar, but seems to be even more sensitive to it. I found myself fighting the
auto-indenting more than following it. So, I turned it off by default.
However, there may be a way to offer it as a user option. I'll have to think
more carefully about that. Thanks for the bug report.
