Egads... This commit message is way, way over the top.

1) the warning is more obscure than the problem it points to.

2) simple "statement accidentally indented one column too deep"
would do just fine

3) crediting the tool is generally a good idea, but in situation
when the quality of warning is that low you'd be better paraphrasing
it and mentioning the tool that has pointed it out. No need to quote
the verbiage.
