This is so one can change `let' into `let*' and
back without moving anything else.

Personally, I wouldn't mind just one "let"
which would be equal to `let*', as legend has
it the supposed parallelism of `let' is an
urban legend, however now when it is like it is
it would be confusing (to other people) to
always use `let*' when there is no reason to,
even tho there is equally little/as much reason
to use plain `let'...

This style I got from this book:

      author     = {Conrad Barski},
      ISBN       = 1593272812,
      publisher  = {No Starch},
      title      = {Land of Lisp},
      year       = 2010

It was one of the first books on Lisp that
I read and I think the only one I completed.
I've heard CL people don't like that style.
But now that I say it I actually don't remember
what dialect was used in the book. For sure it
wasn't Elisp.

That's known as indentation. If it looks
strange to anyone, perhaps it is time to stop
using Comic Sans MS as the default font...?
