skip backwards with fewer keystrokes


Yes, I can see that, but it isn't that big of a deal for me, in fact I think I frequently use the mouse to do that, which is worse.
Also, when using two SPACEs per indent it's less of a burden than with four.

a touch typist


I definitely am not, but coding is like writing literature, so it's OK.

auto indenting tends to be a hinderance


Unsure what you are referring to. If you mean having a new line auto-indented to the same level as the previous when you hit RETURN, I like that. With my coding format style, I have a lot of indent levels, so that saves me type.

it tends to break my train of thought


There are still things Visual Studio does which I don't like and I seem to have no control over them, and I occasionally have to UNDO (Ctrl-Z) an auto-formatting change it made.
It's part of why I wrote my own simple IDE which does only what I want it to.
