    Because every language is so different, every language requires individual care. So there are language specific formatters ( for Haskell), which are usually configurable by some configuration file the in the project.

    In the long run, though, I expect Fourmolu (not Ormolu) will end up becoming the norm, because, really, two-space indents are not going to work for everyone. One of the things I like about hindent (that I did myself) is that it discovers default language extensions from the .cabal file, so you don't need to specify those yourself. I might see if I can get that code into Fourmolu.
