I merely fixed obvious but minor issues in Lindent as I stumbled upon
them the one time in my life I used that script. That was years ago.
I'm not using it on a regular basis. My principle is that if a script
is present in the kernel tree then it can and should be maintained. If
it is deemed not worth the maintenance effort then it should be
deleted. I don't care either way.
