I too prefer to leave the binary operator trailing on the first line,
scripts/Lindent seems to do this too for the cases that I tried, though
it makes poor choices on which binary operator to leave dangling in a
long expression ... it just makes the first line as long as possible
without going over the 80 char limit ... which often isn't the best
place to split the line.

That would be fine for me ... one less file for me to manage :-)
