Well, I could have converted one variable at the time, but that seemed
an overkill :-)

Basically I'm trying to follow the style of the surrounding code, while
keeping in mind that in the Git codebase tabs seem to be preferred to spaces.
In this case, the indentation of the following text (that was the "meat" of
