OK, thank you for the confirmation.
I attach a patch that adds sci_get_line_indentation() and
sci_set_line_indentation() to the plugin API. I don't need the latter
but I have added it because I think they goes quite together; but if you
don't think so, I can update the patch to only include the get().
