Sorry, but the answer is in the form "I don't know what it will do, I
will not use it so no one will find this usefull".
I found this simple script usefull when hacking sources. Moving pieces
of code, adding something, adding simple comments, to know what I am
messing with, usually breaks 'coding style'. At the end I don have to
manually ident my work but rather pass it through the script which
will do 99% of the work for me.

If you like to spend your time hand identing or you use programming
environment smart enough to do it is up to you.
