This was changed because for very long scripts, indenting the entire
script (instead of just one handler) could cause a considerable pause
when indenting. (HyperCard did the whole script, but HyperCard also
had a 32K limit on a single script.)
This was quite a while ago, and it's possible that it would not be
much of an issue now with faster CPUs. But that's why it changed.
