How about an automated version?  I've been using this:

; automatically indenting yanked text if in programming-modes

(defadvice yank (after indent-region activate)
  (if (member major-mode '(emacs-lisp-mode
                           c-mode c++-mode
                           tcl-mode sql-mode
                           perl-mode cperl-mode
                           java-mode jde-mode
                           LaTeX-mode TeX-mode))
      (indent-region (region-beginning) (region-end) nil)))

I run in to this problem sometimes when yanking a piece of code with
certain indentation into a new place where it should have different (more
or less) indentation. My solution is:

C-x C-x (exchange-point-and-mark) to re-highlight the yanked text
<TAB> to properly indent it for the new contexxt
