    Then I hope you don't mind me asking, why is there (L)indent? Everyone
    can make a mistake and if your editor does not auto-format then there
    may be a whitespace straying.
    I also guess you saw that the script is _not_ for cleaning up
    source-files (can be intrusive and is better to be fixed when fixing
    something else), but patches. So if a maintainer does not have anything
    to easily fix those, they might want a simple script to do the work
    (otherwise I believe they just deleted my mail ;) ).

    As I said in the posting, it is just if someone is interested in it,
    otherwise you have a Del-button.
