today I check the version 0.6.1 of the patch.

It turned out that imonlcd.c used a mix of space & tab indention mode.
So I piped it through indent. Unfortunately indent doesn't like C++
style comments so I converted them to C style. It also aligned it with
the style of other souces files we have.

Regarding LCDd.conf: The "legal" section should list all possible
values, not only those other than the default.

I also removed some commented out code related to the bars. If I was
wrong there, it's no problem to revert.

One of the TODOs left is: "Check if either setLineLength or
setBuiltinProgressBars could be removed as the former is only a wrapper
to the latter."

What about this?

No functional changes have been made, but please test if the comment
changes broke something.

Version 0.6.2 of the patch has been uploaded to SF.
