I believe it is because of the following:
in Emacs-20, sh-script did not offer auto-indentation so skeletons used
a "rigid" form of indentation defined in the skeleton's definition.
In Emacs-21, OTOH sh-script offers auto-indentation and skeletons thus
simply rely on it to do their job.

Now why was the indentation style chosen differently in the indentation
code than what the skeletons used, I don't know.
