Commit Message

From: John Snow <jsnow@redhat.com>

_tree_to_qlit is called recursively on dict values (isolated from their
keys); at such a point in generating output it is too late to apply an
ifcond. Similarly, comments do not necessarily have a "tidy" place they
can be printed in such a circumstance.

Forbid this usage by renaming "suppress_first_indent" to "dict_value" to
emphasize that indents are suppressed only for the benefit of dict
values; then add an assertion assuring we do not pass ifcond/comments
in this case.
