Hi Tomas,

In my experience people who need to make eepitch ignore spaces before
red stars often also need to make eepitch ignore a FIXED number of
spaces in the beginning of non-red-star lines, and this fixed number
depends on the context (*).

There are many cases in which people learn A+B much faster than
they would learn B if they skipped A - and we are in a case like that:
eepitch with ignored spaces is B, and configuring eepitch in ~/.emacs
with a block with a setq and a defun that starts with two links in
comments like this,

  ;; See: (find-elisp-intro)
  ;; and: (find-eepitch-intro "3.3. `eepitch-preprocess-line'")

is A.

In this case forcing people to learn A to use B will save them a lot
of time and frustration in the future.
