Maybe someone here uses that program.  If so, and you're one
of the indent users, perhaps you could show us some indent runs,
with options, and for each run (or just invocation),
say what you wanted to accomplish, and
why you used those options, and maybe how you came up with
that set of options.

That would *really* be useful, would make indent a *lot* more
likely to get used.
