Thanks for that. That hint led me to my own embarrassing mistake,
quickly: I had downloaded an HTML-marked up version of the .js-file -

@Pierre: I also verified that the indentation script still shows up,
when chaging the "languages" to nonsense names that are definitely not
installed (of course it will not work correctly, then, on comments,
but it still shows up). So I don't know which subspecies of gremlin you
were seeing, but I suspect it was a similarly benign one... Do go ahead
and submit that review request on!
