   Jack, I can take a quick stab at your questions.

   (You did mean "FOR i=0,n DO BEGIN", didn't you?)  You say later on that
you're doing:

Emacs offsets are always(?) relative to the previous line; since
idlwave-end-offset is 0, the indentation for ENDFOR goes to the same
column as "stuff".  If you make these -3 and 3 respectively (the defaults,
at least in idlwave 4.5, are -4 and 4), it should indent, automatically,
to the columns it looks like you want it to (including "stuff").

   I'm not sure how to change this, but it looks like idlwave makes
indent-line-function buffer-local and then sets it to its own function,
'idlwave-indent-and-action.  So, your setq isn't making any difference.

    I hope this helps,
