    First of all look at the code of Emacs. Where, in all thousands of lines of 
Emacs, do you find a code as you do critique here:


It is not unreasonable to write a keyword symbol
as the second argument to prog2.  That case should be handled properly.

The way to handle this case properly, and many others too,
is that the special rules for indenting the first two
arguments of prog2 should take precedence over this feature for
keyword symbols.

In fact, it might be ideal if this feature for indenting keywords
applies only when indenting a list whose car is not recognized
as a known function at all.
