Another reason of such indenting is to not broke CVS diffs.
If you shift right a big block of code just because an additional if()
added, the whole CVS diff will be useless :(

I'm using indent-subdivide in mplayer.c, so if i have to add an if() to
a 4-wide indented code, i'll change it 2-wide there, so no shift needed.

Maybe. But I hate programming in graphic mode, and text mode is ugly at
17" or bigger. So i'm using 15" for programming and a big TV screen for picture.

But I did :)

I see no sense of generating that 10-30k Makefiles which build .libs etc
directories and make source full with temp files (.d .o .lo etc).
It makes ls -la unreadable :)
(and also badly indented :))
