I'm not going to repeat what I've already explained in detail in the
document.  (If the document isn't clear, I'd be happy to clarify, but
you don't seem to be asking questions based on the document at all.)

If I understand correctly, SRFI-49 essentially inserts parens
according to indentation.  Thus, if you changed indentation, you could
change the meaning of the program.

P4P *checks* indentation but does not let indentation define meaning.
