I agree ;)

The reason I added it to my own tool was when I had to look at SQL statements from (application) logfiles. They are usually just one long string and very hard to read. Quickly applying some basic rules (line breaks etc), helps tremendously.

That's also the reason it's not very sophisticated. It's just "good enough".
