we have this option, someone wants this to be local to buffer or someone
want to have 'sw' follow 'ts' but not 'sts'.
I think it is easier, if we just document the special behaviour of
using 0 or -1 or whatever value we agree about.
Users that care to customize, can read about the special values in the
documentation, which they have to do anyhow. If they don't care, they use
whatever their disro or filetype plugin provides and then it is no
problem, that the values are not obvious.
