The "expected indent" message seems a little abrupt to me (does
it mean there's a problem because an indent is expected, or a
problem with an indent that was expected, or a problem because
an expected indent isn't there?) so i have changed it to
SyntaxError: expected an indented block
The latter case, "expected unindent", never occurs -- it is
always okay to continue an indented block, so a DEDENT is never
The rest of the messages now say "unindent" instead of "dedent".
I've updated the patch.
