Okay. Will you accept a patch to add vim modelines to every single file
in libmakepkg instead? Because it seems to be missing from there ;) and
I only noticed the problem after writing a bunch of changes and noticing
the diff was horribly screwed up.

I didn't even realize that this project used vim modelines until you
said something, but I haven't really looked at the C part.

Personally, I saw EditorConfig and said "this is finally the solution".
It lets you specify project coding standards in machine-readable format
*once* and then editors get to interpret that, e.g. via editor plugins
created by the EditorConfig project. But hey, standards proliferate and
all that, I get where you are coming from too.

Please do reconsider as Christian Hesse said, whether it makes sense to
switch now, once, and get rid of modelines forever. But I am okay with
either solution, so long as I don't have to deal with my default
settings clashing with the project standards.
