[Slackbuilds-users] Vim indent settings for SlackBuilds

A vim modeline is just a commented line at the end of the file. Its presence there shouldn't force anyone to use vim. Neither should it affect anyone who is using another text editor for editing SlackBuilds, as long as that comment line just stays there.

I'm merely providing an option rather than strongly trying to advocate for enforcing such a change, since I'm not even contributing buildscripts to SBo, so my voice is quiet.
