I don't understand either, but perhaps he means that as long as the
lines of a suite are indented more than their introductory line, the
meaning should be clear (although "sibling" lines of the introductory
line should still be indented the same as the introductory line, e.g.
"elif" lines should still be indented the same amount as their "if"
line).

It would look untidy though! :-)
