Though that it is introduced by default is arguable what can be seen in responses here. > > General design of user interface should not conquer their habits > > unless substantial amount of users have demanded it so. > > And how exactly would maintainers know that?

In this specific case it is easy to know what was the condition before and what is condition after introduction of that new feature. Somebody offered reasoning and I have seen 3-4 people declaring that function works OK. Super fine. But that is not reasoning enough to change some default behavior of a program for maybe hundreds of thousands of users. Better reasoning could be to ask on the mailing list what people think about it and how they are using indentation as that way more information may be obtained if such or any new feature would be more useful or contraproductive for users. You ask them. > Please, don't confuse. I said you should *not* use (the command) > `org-indent-region' if you were systematically manually overriding > indentation defaults.

Maybe I made a mistake, as that is exactly what I did set. I am using Org for some years, so of course it came to me very surprising. Person who just start using it recently with such defaults should rarely find it awkward as person learns about it and assumes it is how it is.
