sh-indentation is already marked safe.
sh-basic-offset still needs to be marked as safe. I'll take care of it

What we are trying to do is actually for users not have to care about
this, it should work without any action. For that we are trying to mark
as many variables safe as possible.

this.  Find any variable not marked as safe that is used in any local
variable section in the code that they have access to.
