Well, this is getting to be bikeshedding, but one may do what
indent does: despite there being several different styles of
indentation, and the indentation wars being as religious as anything
else, indent just allows you to specify your preferred style, and goes
from there. So, you could run lintian --style-manoj, and be perfectly
in sync with the one true style of packaging. Or else you could say
lintian --style-Rogério, if you were less enlightened :-)
But, this is probably going to take some effort, and I am not
currently volunteering to code that.
