I do it like so

	if ((super_long_name_that_some_idiot_thought_was_smart > 1) &&
	    (super_long_name_that_some_idiot_thought_was_smarter > 2)) {
	    	something stupid here;
	}

In my vi tab is a tab but shiftwidth is 4, and I map ^A to ^T (I think
that came from the editor on CPM), and I set autoindent.
So after the first line I hit

	return
	^A
	(super....
	return
	tab
	something...
	return
	^D
	^D
	}

just to add to the arcaneness of this endless thread :)
