indent is too inflexible and unreliable. We have uncrustify rules though:

Progress is slow, it is basically "enforced" only on new files, and the intention is to be aligned with FFmpeg.

That does not contradict what he said. We have lots of horrible old code. Which is all the more reason why we really want new code to be a lot better. Because we experienced quite well how hard it is to get code in shape afterwards, usually when the original author has disappeared ages ago.
I'll admit that we certainly overdo it sometimes though.
