No, I think that what's needed is a configurable indentation thing, like
what Jiří and I somewhat started at different times, but didn't finish
for some reasons.  I (or somebody else ;)) should get back on that
subject and try to get something working for real, Geany's
auto-indenting is useless in most non-brace language (but Python as you
noted), which is sad.
