Indented in what way?  You mean the same as Lisp?  I'm not sure maxima
fits very well with Lisp indentation.  I also use a kind of C style, but
somehow that seems not right either.   And when I look at other peoples'
code, there seems to be a huge variation in style.  I don't know which
is "right" or "better" or "worse"; they're all just different.
