I have also made the following bug report for c-submode-indicators (4th Dec)
but not heard anything, possibly because I didn't cc to address@hidden
last time:

  I have two suggestions:

  1) Clicking mouse-2 on the characters after "C" on the mode-line describes
  c-submode-indicators.  It would be helpful if this variable was documented
  to explain the meaning of its value.

  2) The sub-menus of the "Toggle..." menu-item should be radio buttons so
  the user can see their current value.

Also the menu item "Syntactic indentation" is permanently disabled and can't
be toggled.

For some reason none of the defvars in cc-langs.el seem to have doc strings.

The missing functionality might be due to my setup: CC mode almost seems to
be a dialect of Emacs Lisp with its own virtual world of macros.
