Default Two very basic questions about readline(3) and indent(1)

Q1) I'm using rlwrap with ed(1) and want to add tabs while I'm editing. Since tab is used for completions I have altered my .inputrc file, so a tab character is inserted if ctrl-t is pressed, which is not the greatest. So I thought I'd ask if anyone here that uses readline with a CLI editor, can suggest a better alternative keypress, to get around the fact that the tab key is already taken.

Forget that question. Maybe I can bind it to left or right alt or ctrl.

Q2) I want to try some C programming the OpenBSD way and have been reading the man for style(9). At the bottom it suggests a program called indent(1) which has a lot of options. So I was wondering if there is an OpenBSD specfic .indent.pro file uploaded somewhere with those settings. I searched and found one for Arch Linux, but could not find anything for OpenBSD. If there isn't an official one, perhaps you have seen one on Github?
