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.
